Good morning my friend,
My, my what a week of celebrating it has been! First, the celebrations began with fantastic spring-like weather…OK so it rained a little here and there but boy Spring certainly is in the air in Litchfield County, CT! My grass is green, the mosses on the rock walls are amazingly green and I have lots of green buds on many of my plants! Well, since it was St. Patrick’s Day week I guess things should be green.
It was also my birthday so I celebrated with lots of green food. We went to Lucia Ristorante, one of my favorite little restaurants in our town. Here’s a photo of my main course…Shrimp and Scallops Roberto. It was delicious but so rich I could only eat half.
Then sticking to the tradition of green on St. Patrick’s day I did have their signature dessert…a pistachio cake. It was heavenly…
Though I love to cook, I adore going out to dinner. I love being waited on and all the aromas of the different foods. As a foodie going out to dinner at a really good restaurant is a true gift.
I also made a really fun meal one night this week. Sushi Balls! I love sushi but I know that I do not have enough “Zen” in my personality to make sushi. So I saw a recipe for Sushi Balls and decided to make a version of my own. Click here for the recipe.
Thank you so much for inviting me into your day.
Until next week,
