I think I almost forgot how much Italians really do eat! For every day that I stayed with my cousins, we had one huge meal in the middle of the day with at least four courses! Not only that, but I was there for my cousin Tony's birthday so we had an extra big celebration that day :)
I wish I could remember everything we ate, but there was just too much...I do remember it included: prosciutto, melon, cheese, fried dough, grilled egg plant, two types of lasagna, pasta, beef with vegetables, and more!
Following that we had dessert and champagne! Maria made fruit tiramisu and my Zia Dora made fruit pastries...everything was delicious!
Last but not least, here is the birthday boy himself!
