Did I say I outdid myself before? I lied. This time I nailed it–the quintessential Italian dinner, from antipasto to gelato, plus, oh yeah, a birthday cake that actually looks and tastes like one! I’m too caked out to describe it all, so just trust us, it was good! OK, so I am a foodie. Here are some festive scenes. Also, thank you to [you know who you are] for all the very kind birthday greetings to E. She was overcome with gratitude for her adopted family, the only real one she has.
