Instead of going out to a restaurant, Laura Merrill and I had the idea to do an old school Italian dinner at her boyfriend's house. It was the perfect setting- really intimate and dark.
We moved in my old dining room chairs around his clothed round table and lit over 2 dozen candles to set the mood.
LMA saved the day.. She made "mounds" of antipasto and brought lasagna and salad. We also had yummy garlic bread and for desert, Lemon Freeze with biscotti cookies and strawberries in silver goblets. And lots of red wine, of course.
Not too shabby for spur of the moment, and it was a great night to be with my girls.
