What a feast at Maria and Luca's today! I'll just let you enjoy the pictures:

There was squid salad [which I had to pass on, as I can't eat fish]:

Maria had made pane condito - [bread seasoned with oil and herbs] served with fresh cheese inside:

She had also made a tomato pizza

and an onion one:

Then there was chicken, cooked by Linda. I asked her what she had put in the delicious stuffing: "Oh, everything, including marmalade", said she. I will try to get more details, reader!

Next, a 16 kg anguria was brought to the table:

There was much jolly discussion about the best way to cut it

and then it was divided:

There was also sweet Trapani melon:

After that, there was watermelon gel

and finally, torta di gelato:

Grazie, Maria e Luca!

Fabulous as usual.

Yes, I pass on the squid and other creepy crawlies or squidgy swimmies like that.

Gorgeous grub, Welshcakes! Sounds like a wonderful evening. Yesterday la fete brought free music to the Prom' & a 25-minute firework display (Italian organisers!). Aren't these festivals great?

How do you stay so slim, Welshcakes? Sounds like you had a nice day!

It was, Constance. Hi, James. I like that - "squidgy swimmies". Indeed it was, Cherie. Hi, Phidelm. Yes, I love these festivals! With difficulty, Saretta! Yes, a lovely day.

It was, WW, but by then I was too full to have a second slice!
