The holiday party season begins!
Last night we had our holiday dinner party at Nundini for the private practice I work part-time at. Marco (aka sister’s Italian husband) had mentioned this place was rather authentic Italian, but the only downside is that the owner wasn’t very delightful lol.
An hour before we left for the dinner I was super hunger. The dinner didn’t start until 7:30pm and Andrew and I are such early dinner eaters (hello, 6pm). So I had some of an apple + an oreo ball I’ll be sharing the recipe for next week for Cookie Week. Took the edge off the hunger. Extreme hunger doesn’t feel nice. Extreme fullness doesn’t feel nice. But hanging out in between those totally does feel nice.
We started dinner with appetizers. Fried calamari + fried artichoke + endive with burrata + a tasty (unpictured) slice of a crispy thin focaccia of sorts dipped in olive oil.
For dinner I ordered a sage & pancetta wrapped scallop dish with risotto + veggies.
My friend/coworker got sea bass that came with beet risotto. Look at that pink color!! So pretty! LOL about the blurry photo…I wasn’t paying much attention I guess.
For dessert I had hazelnut gelato.
Then we came home late-ish and one of our neighbors has a rebellious teenage daughter who is constantly acting out. I’m hoping the family moves before Andrew and I decide to have children because I’m getting tired of them. So I’m currently typing up this post as I watch the drama unfold across the street. #HappyHolidays
