Zucchini, eggplant, squash, banana peppers, multicolored peppers, pickling peppers

This is a dish served at Konoba Mul, a small restaurant on the North shore of the island Silba, in the Adriatic, 1.5 hours by fast ferry from Zadar. It is whole squid, doused with virgin olive oil and parsley, served with famous potato and greens side dish, Blitva i Krumpir. It is what John would eat every time we went to visit the island.

I returned from a short trip to Europe a few days ago and wanted to share some photos of the city of my birth, Zagreb, the capital of Croatia. The market at the cathedral is the biggest in town and always has amazing fruit, vegetables and flowers.
