Sweet Fried Gnocchi Dumplings

Rejoice, O Ye Cultured Ones.
Let us halt our schedules but a moment,
close tired eyes, fill lungs with slow breath,
and delve into glorious strains of vibrato.
*
Then, let us eat treats.
On the river bank covered with flowers laughing in the morning.
Let us descend together!
Lakmé, Flower Duet

SUSANNA:
Farewell, farewell, farewell, my beautiful Figaro …

FIGARO:
Have courage, my love.

Sweet Fried Gnocchi Dumplings
A quick, simple, and unique dessert, this recipe combines a few of my most passionate European loves. Tender gnocchi is flash-fried until the outside is crispy, then rolled into a bowl of sugar tickled with the scent of fresh lemon and nutmeg. Nutella makes for the perfect dipping sauce (doesn’t it always?!). Topped with fresh strawberries, touching off the end of your favorite spaghetti & meatballs meal, this piccolo treat might just make you sing.

8 oz. gnocchi, cooked and drained
2 c. light olive oil
1 c. sugar
Zest of 1 lemon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
Nutella

In a medium pan, heat olive oil to medium-high heat. Working carefully, place gnocchi in hot oil, frying on both sides until edges are barely browned. Remove from oil and toss immediately in sugar flavored with lemon & nutmeg. Serve warm with Nutella dipping sauce, or allow to cool just slightly before snacking.

The End.

Truly, that’s is not REALLY the end…

    Good communication is a must to develop the healthy relationships in your married life. You should share all your problems and feelings with your partner as well listen to your partner and understand. Make some time for each other to share your emotions. Go for outing with your partner and make some romantic plans for short vacation.-,^.

    Kind regards
