"Guess Who's Coming To Dinner!"

Well Readers, the Girl's that's who!
This weekend friends Jenny, Caitlin and Patricia motored out to the lake Saturday evening for dinner and a show!
Friday night while Patricia and I wandered through the vast land that is Walmart  we decided to do 'Dinner Italiano' So we picked out the makings for Spaghetti and meatballs.  I drove out to the lake late Friday night and Saturday morning some "Casablanca Magic" happned...
I didn't think I had any  red white and green stuff, but I found this checked table cloth in the back of a drawer, then I discovered the green cloth napkins (sent to us by Leah at Storybook Ranch ) next I dug out the Dixie Dogwood dishes and cherry glasses, throw in some sparkling cider and you have the setting for an Italian dinner!
Here we have Miss Caitlin boiling some pasta, (We tricked her into wearing this apron) but she knew how to put together the dinner like a pro! Some salt here, tomato paste there, it just comes naturally.
Of course ANY Italian based dinner needs some dancing!

 With the Spaghetti cooked for the main course, and our mozzarella stick appitizers we headed to the back yard to dine.
 (Caitlin, Patricia, Jenny!)
 We gathered round the table to eat, toast, and watch  "Matilda" on the Drive-In screen. BEFORE I get comments about under age drinking, Relax... its Sparkling Cider haha!
"Oh this is the night, what a wonderful  night and we call it bella notte..."

Mick, you're blogs are so 'upbeat' and somehow 'pure'. Always fresh and happy. Keep it up. Love the table setting Mister!

Other than the fact that sparkling cider really doesn't "go with" Italian food it looks like your little soiree was yet another fabulous success. Isn't there a non-alcoholic Chianti out there somewhere (but if there is, I surely don't want to know. Yuck.)

It's always a pleasure reading your posts!!!!
