Trilussa: Ciao for the Summer

Last week's weather was weird. We had wind, wind, and more wind. Here, that means, sand, sand, and more sand. Everything on the patio was covered with a layer of fine, gritty sand...DAILY. If you tried to hose off the cement, or Windex the table, you got MUD, so everything had to be swept, or blown, before cleaning.

On Friday night, (as evidenced from the wind tunnel hair), we had a "Good-bye for the summer" dinner with Jan and Les, at Trilussa. We celebrated all the events we will miss (birthdays, anniversaries) until they are back next fall. Good friends and good food made us forget the wind!

My veal with lemon was yummy (although I was lusting after everyone's pasta, I enjoyed my veal and broccoli).

Brad had a great linguine with shrimp and scallops.

I REALLY wanted Les' carbonara as it is my favorite in the desert! He let me have a bite. ; ) I taught Les all about carbonara, and must make it for him at least once a year. (I think we are due!)

Jan liked her chicken marsala and pasta.

Since it seemed like a celebration at our table, the waitress brought out tiramisu to share.

It was a great evening, and now we are in the 90s WITHOUT the wind!

We will miss having Jan and Les to play with all summer!

Such a lovely friendship.
Ciao is a good word isn't it with its' double meaning goodbye and hello.
