“Tosca” a farmhouse opera

Although we have always been treated with nothing but warmth and helpfulness from the day we moved into our home in this small community , our homecoming from Perugia really was something special. Friends and neighbours stopped by not only to ask after Nick but also to see if there was anything we needed or anything they could do to help, this was all done with lots of hugs and kisses .
Our animals were also included in this occasion  with bread and vegetables brought for Hilda the goat and the chickens because they are after all part of the family
How lovely and heart warming is all that.

So now we are busy making plans for the coming season and the first plan is to increase our egg production. Our not so young but still very active Cockerel could not believe his luck when a further three  lady chickens of the “Tosca type ” moved in .

I must say Hilda the goat was not too impressed with so many chickens running around her domain but after the first night of all being together the  equilibrium in the little barn seems to have returned.

In the meantime on the other side of the green hills , our next door neighbour Elena is also busy looking after her farm, not only is she very active and organised but also an amazing cook.
A few days ago she presented us with with a rabbit beautifully prepared and ready to cook .I must say she does an amazing job and her  free range rabbits are  always BUONISSIMI . I realize some of you will probably not like the idea of eating rabbit but I really do think the flavour is much nicer than chicken ….anyway it was cooked in a white wine sauce and served with asparagus, red onions and crispy violet baby potato. The dish was a great success and we do feel very privileged to be able to live  in a place were organic products ,  free range meat and beautiful yellow eggs from our chickens are all part of a day after day life style.
