Little Italy

Check out other Alphabe-Thursday's posts at Jenny's.

Some of my friends and I went to little Italy for lunch a couple of weeks ago.  We went to our favorite restaurant, had a glass of wine and chicken parmigiana.

After, we went to our favorite bakery.  I bought a deliciously huge cream puff and a couple of oatmeal cookies to take home.  We also had a cup of coffee outside and talked and people watched.

We then walked down to a Church and went inside to see what it looked like.  I wanted to light a candle but we had to go to the parish office to get a candle. So, we did.   Hmm, I remember the days when you could light a candle and left the donation right there.  I guess those days are gone. 

We left there and decided we wanted to get a glass of wine.  As we were walking an older woman was standing outside the door of a bar/restaurant.  Apparently, she overheard us talking and she invited us to come there for a drink and mentioned they had a patio in the back.  We went in.  The restaurant was decorated in Victorian style.  It was beautiful.  The weather was gorgeous that day and the patio was lovely.  We only had one glass of wine but I had such a great time out there talking and laughing. 

Sometimes it's just so fun, forgetting everything and getting together with girlfriends.

Our son is coming home from Portugal tomorrow afternoon, and we are taking him to an Italian restaurant in Jacksonville for dinner. The food is so authentic, and they give you another entre to take home! Can you believe it?? The last time we went there, my take-home entre was enough for the both of us the next night, with some left over!

On Tuesdays I get together with three of my friends, and we go to lunch after our bridge lesson. It is so relaxing and so much fun.

Great post, Viki! xoxoxoxxo

If that was Little Italy in NYC I'm envious. I haven't been there in many years and I would have loved to have joined you, but I'm in Texas.

A cream puff?


Any outing involving one of those sounds perfect to me!

What an intriguing and fun outing you all had!

I'm glad you shared it for the letter I.
