Even though the USA team is out of the runnings for the world cup, the world cup is playing on! Are you a soccer fan and still watching it? I admit, I do love soccer. But I am not paying super close attention to the games anymore. I check on it, stay up to date and move on.
But I adore Italy! So I shopped at World Market and created a scrumptious and simple salad perfect for eating while watching the game.
World Market is a cultural shopping experience. My heart remains in Italy, I cannot wait to return! Perusing the food, dishes and fashion from the Italian section of the World Market site thrilled my heart. It is the ultimate retail therapy.
I purchased this modern salad bowl, some balsamic vinegar, the noodles, salami and the napkins from World Market. I couldn’t help buying a cute floral print fedora while I was on their site (instagram pic is below). I’m usually quite quick when I shop online, but I was caught up in looking at every single Italian food product. I live two hours from a brick and mortar and cannot wait to walk inside their store next! So if you like cooking international food, World Market should be where you look first.
