Tuesday Photo Challenge – Street

Dutch goes the Photo!

Welcome to Week 58 of the Tuesday Photo Challenge.

This week’s theme is inspired by some of what I have seen in Italy this week, in particular in the smaller towns that are here in Tuscany.  As many of these towns have rather interesting street layouts due to their geography, I’m going with the theme of Street.

Creamy Mushroom Garlic Basil Pesto Spaghetti

Lynne's Recipe Trails

I really seem to be into my carbs lately.  Clearly my body must be lacking something, or I am storing up for winter…but it can’t be the latter as it doesn’t really get THAT cold here (she says all curled up under her duvet nearing the end of May) Well, in all seriousness, a couple weeks ago we really did have a cold spell over the weekend. You should have seen me then….
