Indio, California: Sunday was a quiet day.
(With DT unable to walk much, every day is a quiet day.) I walked four miles and
Dave dragged his body across the pool countless times. With no more Downton
Abbey to fill our Sunday evening, we are now watching
Victoria. The young queen has just married Albert.
Not a photo of food - the view from our campsite in Indio.
The resort was quiet Sunday, people resting after a big
event at the plaza behind the clubhouse Saturday night - Denim & Diamonds -
the annual country-western themed party. The sold-out shindig featured a
live band, dancing, pulled pork sandwiches and bales of hay. Since one of us
is using a cane at the present time, there would be no dancing. Since the
menu featured pork & beans with the pulled pork sandwiches, there would be
no eating. We did not attend. We could hear the music wafting on the wind
Saturday night (while we dined on Chinese food) as hundreds of our fellow
campers enjoyed this popular annual event.
Except for the dried chili flakes I sprinkled over the pizza
tonight, there is no other similarity to Italian pizza and Chinese food. Sadly,
all those tales we have
heard about Marco Polo bringing pasta back to Italy from China are merely that -
stories. Italians were eating noodles well before Marco Polo set sail.
Pizza dough, red sauce, Mozzarella cheese, dried oregano,
dried chili flakes, fresh basil. That's my recipe. Served it with a wedge
And pinot grigio.
Until my next update, I remain, your doughy correspondent.
