Italian Fest '09

Perhaps I should say "first annual Italian fest 09!" Yup, its been decided, declared, and ordered, that I do this every year! Good Lord help me!
It really was a huge success! Of course there were a few mishaps!

Rain. No thank you God not during the party! But the morning was horrible! I sat at the window and prayed and prayed and prayed. Then I went and lit a candle, hung my rosary outside, and prayed some more. By the grace of God the clouds parted and the sun shined in time to dry up the rain!
Since it was raining, I was delayed to finish the decorating and last minute details. So like a crazy woman I was in panic mode and running around, barking orders and pretty much was a complete lunatic. But nothing a couple of glasses of good chianti couldn't handle!
Guest arrived, and were greeted by the smells of Italian sausage and the sounds of Louie Prima!
Here was the menu
Antipasto platters
Sheets of different pizzas
Italian sausage with peppers and onions
baked ziti
greens and beans
eggplant parm
italian cookie trays
lemon ice (huge hit!)

  1. Looks like fun! I like the breadstick holder! How cute to use an old tomato can! Very creative!
