Dinner with Nancy and Bill

We enjoyed a lovely evening with Nancy and Bill on Saturday. After a drink and snack at our house, we went to the Tea House Wine Bar for a dinner of appetizers. They have great "small plates" (not so small).

Bill began with the house special mushroom soup:


Nancy had the huge, delicious coconut shrimp.


Brad and I shared "lamb lollipops":


Then Brad had "Chinese lanterns" (peppers stuffed with shrimp), and I had my favorite Orange Shrimp (most are in my fridge for another meal).



Nancy and Bill had beautiful salads, and some of the lamb lollipops.

We talked all about our Umbria adventure, and Nancy and Bill's upcoming trip to Lake Como, Torino and Acqui Terme. I want to sneak into their luggage!

Then I enjoyed a brilliantly strong cup of coffee while the chocoholics devoured this
"Chocolate Overload Torte".



What a fun and tasty evening! Buon Viaggio, Nancy and Bill!
