Last weekend

19 Nov

It stared friday night when we got an invite by a friend for a dinner celebration for her big 5-0….. She settled a nice and clean table for four……………

and she delighted us with mushrooms and leek pasta,

roasted tomatoes, potatoes and onions….

roasted peppers stuffed with rice and cheese….

and a tender pork roast with mushrooms potatoes and polenta

Finished? Not yet… A birthday celebration is not a birthday celebration without a birthday cake which we provided…..the least we could do….

Our gift to our friend? This CK bag we knew she liked….

But this was just a private celebration between us close friends, the very big one took place yesterday at lunch at a restaurant in her hometown of Verona. We were lucky enough to be invited-and-not-paying guests (the place is a bit expensive) her husband decided that the big 5-0 happens once in a lifetime (and luckily, I have to add!!) so he wanted all of their friends to be there celebrating….

Here she is (very elegant and moved…) posing with husband

I had a though time trying to take photos of all the delicious food they served, and  I did my best…..

……to survive till the birthday cake!

Before the cake she was given our collective gift, a beautiful Tiffany necklace…

We all had a great time together……… the food, the company, the place, it was all so nice!

Before lunch we haven’t had the chance to have a  walk throught this amazing little town…. but coming out of the restaurant, we were greeted by this……………too bad it was cold and late….
