My book club came over to see my movie of our Italy trip. We began with champagne, ham-gruyere palmiers and parmesan -paprika crackers.
Dinner was simple and easy. We had a huge green salad with lettuce, arugula, peppers, red onion, tomatoes (which I picked out of mine), croutons, and grilled chicken breasts with a pomegranate vinaigrette. We had a simple tortellini salad with tomatoes, basil and mozzarella, and garlic bread.
We tried to compile a list of all the books we've read in the past 2 1/2 years. We came up with 26 or so, and wrote them down. We watched my Umbria movie. For dessert, we had a fig jam-marscapone tart, and everyone got a jar of Fig-Amaretto jam to take home. We decided we needed a name. We became the Fig Jam Tarts!
Next month we will discuss The Glassblower of Murano by Marina Fiorato. Whoo Hoo, we are going back to Italy!
