Question of the Day #938

It's been a while since I've had a traditional Italian dinner at a family event. But yesterday, the meal started with a caprese salad, followed by eggplant rollatini. Next came a mixed green salad. The penne vodka pasta course was a precursor to the veal piccata. All that was followed by coffee and cake.

Then I walked two miles and tried to forget I enjoyed every bite.

What do your family event meals look like?



  1. Dinner with my huband (aka my family), with any assortment of dishes or recipes I've come across recently. FUN! :-)

    But I always enjoy tagging along to friends' or mother-in-law's side of the family's big Italian dinner. They are THE best! YUM!

  2. I take rhat meal any day.... Reminds me of my Grandma Gallo's house....the courses just kept coming.... And of course you finished them all.

  3. To this day my husband can't say "no" to my 95 year old Noni. She feeds him her homemade pasta and sauce. He eats. She keeps feeding. He keeps eating. He leaves doubled over in over-indulging pain.

    ...I giggle.
