I did not want to cook although I wanted to have all the children and grand children together for lunch during Easter. Then I received an email from an Italian restaurant nearby publicizing their Easter Feast. I asked the kids what they thought of it... and they all said, it sounded great... and no one was going to have to do dishes.
So we all headed out to meet for lunch... I should have cooked!
The prefixe meal started with a Spring Pea Bruschette. I thought it was ok, the boys did not like it. Perhaps I was just hungry, imagine mushed peas on top of toast.... hmmm.
I asked the waitress if the featured Primitivo was good and she said "Yes, it is red." Good thing we brought our own bottle. With a response, like that, I thought I should have cooked.
Then came a choice of either salad or soup. I chose the salad which I could hardly eat. It was doused in very vinegary dressing. The kids chose the soup...
The girls in the family had lamb chops... minature ones... I know lamb chops are small but these were really tiny. Shawn had vegetarian lasagna, while Mike had some sort of pasta... probably a better choices.
The saving grace was the dessert, Bunet di Amaretti. At that point, I was craving Palma's Nutella Panna Cota. Close, but Palma's was really good .... I did enjoy this dessert.... but then there was chocolate and caramel in front of me ... yeah.
The company was great... the best. :)
The 2 Mikeys... Uncle Mike and Baby Mikey,
Izzy and Auntie Tracey.
Lots of hugs.
My daughter in law, Katrina and Mikey.
Liam was asleep most the time, so no photos this time .... most of the time we were there... and I do not know why Shawn is not in any of the photos... But I think he agrees, next year, we are cooking!
