Code Yellow!!

I cannot believe we have not left this Comune since before Christmas. This Comune is not big. It encompasses Umbertide city and three of four other smaller towns. And that’s it! We did go to Citta di Castello to pick up our Permessi, but that was a legitimate reason. We had the official appointment. The fines can be upwards of €500 if caught without a reason.

We heard today we will go Yellow Zone on April 26. I can’t wait. The biggest changes from Orange to Yellow are the restaurants can open of lunch and you can sit down and have a coffee or a drink. We will still have everything closing at 6pm though. And the 10pm to 5am curfew stays. The other change is we will be able to leave Umbertide. And travel within Umbria. Not outside, just inside Umbria…but that will be wonderful! Wow! What freedom!
Dinner tonight was from Calagrana. It was not one of the regional dinners like normally on Friday. It was a veal chop with the vegetables that go with it. It was delicious.

The weekend weather will be pretty chilly but no rain to speak of. Not that we have anything planned! How could we? There is the local market tomorrow. I will probably go out for that and a few errands I need to do. Sigh. Zona Giallo can’t come soon enough!
Have a great weeknd! Stay safe. 🌈

    They are Cannellini beans. I think it is our favorite bean. Goes really well in a salad dressed with garlic and good olive oil. And I use it in soups often. Also great with some grilled sausages! Mmmm. I think we may take some drives around the region but won’t be visiting any places. Until we get our vaccines we want to be extra careful. Wouldn’t it be awful to get the damn virus after getting so close?!

    Though I love your posts from Umbertide, I can’t wait to read (and see) more of Umbria. Congratulations to all of you for Code Yellow. Can’t wait to see success with the vaccines for all of you in Italy soon (I hope). Lovely dinner. What beans are those? (Am I ALWAYS asking you fagiolo questions lol?)
