la festa italiana 2018


it's our long-standing tradition to visit our local italian festival each year on labor day weekend.  we love the great food and the memory that it was were ryan and i went on our very first date back in 2004.  (someone mentioned to me last week that she never goes to the festival and i was shocked.  are you kidding me?  this festival is like a religion to me!)

we headed down to the italian festival on sunday evening with our parents to have some dinner and watch the fireworks.  the weather was great!  ryan and i headed back down on monday night before the festival closed to grab a quick bite to eat and some dessert right before a crazy storm came.  talk about good timing!

^deep fried pizza!  it was so good and wasn't greasy at all.  the dough was incredibly light and fluffy!^
^gnocchi with a delicious sauce^
^a lobster tail pastry stuffed with cannoli filling - by far the best dessert we have ever had in all of our years at the italian festival!^

let the countdown being for next year's festival!  ;-)

love, laurie

The Italian festival is always a good time and of course good food.
