MID-MARCH LUNCH

What a feast I enjoyed yesterday with friends at the home of Roberta and Roberto in Ragusa!

There were antipasti of olives, arancini,  prosciutto,  little mozzarelle and sun-dried tomatoes:







Then there were home-made ravioli with a mushroom sauce:


There were two main courses, of chicken and of pork:




There were mandarins from Roberta and Roberto's garden:



Linda had prepared a very British trifle


and, as I had been longing to try some of the delectable chocolate fancies on display in our local bar, I took some along to share with my friends.  The coloured chocolate cases are filled with a Modican chocolate cream and to the right of the tray you can see chocolate flavoured torrone and cobaita:


I can think of no better way to spend a Sunday afternoon!

Yes what a mid March feast .. with great friends too... similar to all the Italian foods I tasted on Saturday at La Dolce Vita ♥ except the meats and desserts though!

Hi, Anne. La Dolce Vita must have been a great occasion too.

A sumptuous spread as usual with some fine-looking desserts to end the meal. What a Sunday!

It all looks delicious but I think the trifle wins. It has my favourite fruit choice for a trifle on top ;-)

Oh, scandalous! You do know that most of this makes us envious!

Did Simi get a bit? I'm off to look for Simi's barkings on women's day now!

A few years ago when we were in Ragusa Ibla, we had the greatest meal at a restaurant in the new town. We asked this passerby where a good restaurant was. She couldn't tell us in English but waved to us to follow her as she took us to the restaurant. I never knew the name but the food was awesome.

Looks just wonderful...mangia bene! I have never seen the chocolate torrone.

Hi, rowena. Yes, indeed. Hi, Cherie. Yes, the trifle was excellent. Sorry, Rosaria! Hi, Gleds. Yes, of course. She'll be pleased you're going to read her post! Hi, anne. Oh, I wish you could tell me the name of the restaurant! Hi, Patricia. It was very good. Yes, I've been very lucky, LindyLouMac.
