A funny thing happened on the way to the forum.
Well, really on the way to tour the Appian Way by bike.
We stumbled upon the Mercato de Campagna Amica del Circo Massimo and a spontaneous, fresh-from-the-farm lunch opportunity.
Chard, fennel, sausage, fava, bread, and wine in a Dixie cup.
With room left for pistachio gelato.
Possibly the most wonderful meal served on disposable dishes ever!
