I like the sound of the combination -- onions and bacon bits. :)

Simona Carini

Thank you, Paz!

Grazie, Sandra. Buone Feste anche a te.

A combination that was definitely meant to be. But I wonder about the name: the potatoes are definitely earthbound, but the heaven/sky part? I would have imagined some kind of flying bird or poultry to follow through on the metaphor. Onions are root vegetables like potatoes and pigs, well, as we all know they don't often fly....

Simona Carini

Ciao Frank. Indeed, the metaphor works better for the earth part than for the heaven part, as apples hanging from a tree are only a small step up from the ground, though often a ladder is necessary to get at them. Maybe birds were out of reach for the people who came up with the name of the dish, while apples were available.


Ti lascio la mia ricetta per l'abbecedario:
Un caro saluto e tanti auguri di buon anno!!!!

Simona Carini

Grazie Simona. Ho aggiunto il link alla lista nel post di inaugurazione della tappa. Auguri anche a te.


Un bacione grande Simona e buon anno anche a te! A presto

Simona Carini

Grazie Lucia. Devo pensare a cosa preparare per festeggiare Malta, un posto che mi ha affascinato quando l'ho visitato anni fa.
