Intern Pot Luck

Friday night I hosted a summer BBQ Pool Party for my interns. It started out as a "Buon Viaggio" Party for Senorina and I. (She and her husband are joining our GrapeHops-Palmabella's Italy group to Bologna and Venice.) Last week, our amazing Clinical Director, Lena, announced she is leaving our agency, so we wanted to honor her and spend some time time hanging out together.


The menu had an Italian theme! I made some home made pizze, some sausage pasta from Bologna, and served some parmigiano with balsamic honey, and prosciutto. Everyone brought the rest, and we drank wine all evening.



For dessert, I made a simple, do-ahead, refreshing lemon ice-cream cake.


Make a lemon cookie crust (3 c. lemon cookie crumbs, 4 oz. melted butter in bottom of a 9x13 pyrex. Bake 10 min. at 350. Cool)

The next layer is 1/2 gallon of vanilla ice cream mixed with 8 oz. lemon curd. Freeze.

Next, 2 pints of lemon gelato, softened and spread over ice cream layer. Freeze.

Top with lemon curd before serving!

What a lovely and fun filled summer party. I envy the women you work with. They are so lucky in many ways. What a fabulous party and the lemon dessert to die for. I know you are counting the days til you go to Italy and Federico. I'm so excited for you.

Cathy Butero:

Can I just say, Palma you are the coolest lady on the planet! You are the hostess with the mostest and a heartwarming charm to go with it!
