my taste buds..

this past week was another great week for food. on thursday we went to theme dinner at our dining hall. they do this every thursday and it consists of five courses with a different glass of wine for each course. its no secret that we all walk out a little buzzed. this week's theme was "the harvest" so everything had to do with grapes. yum.

braised beef with extra virgin olive oil mashed potatoes 
chianti wine from theme dinner
potato gnocchi with smoked scamorza cheese fondue and black grapes
[if you've never had gnocchi run to the nearest italian restaurant and get yourself a plate immediately}
(slow food/salami) mousse, celery puree, white grapes, and toasted bread
beccafico-style sardines
[don't ask me what that means i'm just reading off the menu]
"autumn in florence" cinnamon gelato, rum soaked figs, and some kind of amazing pudding in a chocolate dish
beef over veggies
a panini "springtime" from pino's. seriously a must when visiting florence
pasta with artichokes
apple creme brulee
lamb over white beans
tuscan bread and grape dessert
a purple smoothie from love life juice bar
my meal from the diner. see the post about it here
our burnt but delish apple crisp
bombolone filled with creme from our trip to chianti

now i'm hungry
