(Wikipedia: "Gelato is an Italian frozen dessert made from water, milk and/or soy milk, combined with flavourings, sweeteners, and a stabilizing agent. The gelato ingredients are first pasteurized then super-cooled while stirring to break up ice crystals as they form. Unlike ice cream, gelato machinery whips almost no air into the gelato, resulting in a dense and extremely flavorful product. This allows even non-dairy gelato to match and sometimes exceed dairy-based gelato or ice cream for taste. ")
- and I've had 2 reminders of this today - once at work, a coworker mentioned a cafe downtown that serves it and it was the best icecream he's ever had, and again on a blog that I'm currently reading Living in Florence by Melinda Gallo which mentioned a place in Florence called GROM. I went to the website and read about their ingredients, flavours, and Slow Food Foundation membership - I can't wait to try the Huehuetenango Coffee flavour or Pistachio - which was one of Chris' favorites!
I love to travel and look forward to seeing more of the world, while trying my hardest to not get caught in the American-dream rat race. I want to be used to help others and am inspired by people who are dedicated to meaningful living. My life has taken me to places around the world, including moving to Italy with my husband for a year. The future is exciting and this is me just learning to enjoy the journey.
