Today is a take it easy day. We are very much of the opinion that you can't do everything and some things that were on our list of places we'd like to see may just stay that way. We want to just relax and laze around today. Part of soaking up the Tuscan experience after all is stopping and listening to the sounds of the countryside. We take the opportunity later in the afternoon to take a drive into the nearby town of Panzano which is a pretty hilltop town we discovered the other day on our way to San Gimignano. It also faces west so I just know it will look lovely under a late afternoon sun.
We return to Le Cetinelle in time to cook saltimbocca my way, with a slice of prosciutto lain on each escalope of veal, a sage leaf or two, rolled up and held together with a tooth pick. The rolls are pan fried, then the pan deglazed with some white wine. I added some philly (because I didn't have cream) then thickened up the sauce. It was pretty yummy.
