On a day like this, take advantage of a more cozy meal, such as this tomato zucchini risotto, which combines very simple ingredients and takes advantage of the season’s abundance of tomatoes and zucchinis. It is incredible the amount of zucchini I’ve been using lately: they go into soups, cakes, bolognaise, salads, risottos and the summer it’s still half through. In fact, if you have any suggestions about nice recipes where to throw one or two zucchinis more you can leave them in the comments box, I will be very grateful.
I like it when, in the summer, after a row of days with temperatures to the maximum which leaves my patience to the minimum, comes a gray day, perhaps a few shy drops of rain, those said to only wet the fools, that releases the wonderful earthy aroma from the wet soil, leaves the air more clear and the house fresh again. The countryside benefits from the brief relief of summer but even the city is more beautiful under the light of a slight overcast sky, that seems to combine with the melancholy of the old facades.
