For this month's Movie Night, we chose Italian food. Again. We really like Italian food. The movie was Letters To Juliet. The first time I saw this by myself at home, and I pretty much enjoyed it. It's not like the best movie I've ever seen or anything, and I probably wouldn't buy it, but it was a pleasant way to satisfy the chick flick mood. The story line was really sweet, but there were some gag-me-with-a-rusty-fork moments too. Anyway, when you watch it with a group of giggling girls those bits kind of get lost among all the cackling, leaving only the parts where we make childish vomiting noises during the sappy scenes.
Anyway, I made cannoli (cannolis? cannoles? I made whatever the plural form of cannoli is.) Courtney made pistachio gelato and bread salad. Talaya made tortellini spinach bake. Jamie brought wine and cheese, and Nichole made sangria.
Bread salad is really... neat. Or some Italian word that means neat. Recipe is officially called Panzanella Salad, and you can get it here. I highly suggest you do. I didn't think I'd like all those veggies, but I did! And it's so pretty too.
(Jamie and Nichole. Aren't they adorable?)
Oh, and my husband made this... stuff. It has cherry tomatoes, black olives, and mozzarella tossed in salad vinegar with basil. I'm pretty sure I ate several pounds of it over the weekend.
I'm going to post the cannoli recipe/process tomorrow, so stay tuned!
