|The subject of our Cooking for Wellness class was pasta. This dish, Summer's Last Hurrah, was made from gluten-free corn pasta, cannelloni beans and lots of vegetables. It was delicious especially with shaved Parmesan cheese|
As for the natural resistant starches commonly found in beans and raw oats, just because humans lack the enzymes to digest them doesn't mean the bacteria in our guts can't. Aside from varying amounts of gas produced in fermentation, various fatty acids are produced and micronutrients that my source claim are helpful in preventing cancer.
Then there's the very sad side of cancer. One lady said in two months, she will be gone. Not to Italy, not visiting friends somewhere else but ...gone.
Back at the ranch, I've made two more reservations: one for Verona which seems to be an expensive city and was filling up fast and one for Ravenna, which is not expensive but will cause more time on the trains to get there. The latter is at a b&b with an Italian only speaking owner so I wrote in what I thought was good Italian. Later I see that I wrote 'noche' instead of 'notte'. When I first tried to learn Italian, I tried to erase all the Spanish I knew because the similar words were messing me up. Apparently I didn't erase all the words. It didn't matter as she seemed to know what I wanted and everything is all set. I have one open night between Castel Rotto and Florence. Probably will go to Bologna.
Right now I am babysitting the phone due to someone's poor planning. As today is a bicycle ride day and it's cold outside, it's all good.
