I came across this photo this morning on Facebook on the My Gozo Guide page. Quite a historical photo of the first TV to appear in Gozo. It was a national event in 1958!

Below is a great little video featuring Gennaro Contaldo making pizza in Gozo. Besides being a very easy and delicious recipe it is a very amusing video to watch.

Pic: Taken just before this blog entry
We tend to come back from Gozo laden with other people's generosity in the form of, what could mistakenly be taken as, a mobile vegetable shop. Today was no different. Freshly cut cabbage, broccoli, garlic, lettuce, spinach.........and............heaps and heaps of parsley. There is only so much parsley one can use throughout the week so what to do with it all? Today I decided to make a parsley pesto.
I very roughly cut off the heads off the parsleyy with a bit of stalk and threw it all in the liquidiser with heaps of olive oil, feshly squeezed lemons, loads of fresh garlic, freshly ground pepper and about half a packet of left over sunflower seeds which have been sitting in my jar for quite a long time! You can basically throw anything you want in nut wise - see what needs using up.
A good whizz in the liquidiser and dip your finger in to a delicious taste of freshness that only nature can supply.
How to use it? Any way you want. It can be a substitute for the normal basil pesto with pasta, spread on crispy toasted bread, a nice dollop on top of a piece of roasted or barbecued bit of meat.......just use your imagination a bit and discover cooking your usual day to day things with a little bit of something else thrown in.

Below are just a few photos I found on the internet of Gozo in ''times gone by''. I think most of them were collated by Giovanni Bonello and published in a book by Fondazzjoni Patrimonju Malti.

Gozo's landscape is beautiful whatever the weather. Today the skies were a bit stormy and the sea a bit rough making it even more dramatic looking. The pics below were taken in Dwejra.
Head straight out and you may end up in Tunis

Strong winds off West Greece and South Italy brought some big sea onto the Maltese shoreline. Yesterday parts of the island experienced mini tornadoes which caused some damage, including turning over a couple of small private aircraft. Today we woke up to clear sunny skies, no wind but big waves. Below are just a few shots taken along the Coast Road.
Both reefs in Mellieha breaking nicely and even the Sikka l-Bajda was breaking occasionally and that is about a mile out!
Ghallis - where we normally windsurf in a NW'ly. Difficult to launch for board surfers today.
