Occasionaly, my sister in law, Jenn and I like to dote on our husbands and suprise them with a special dinner or fun activity that we wouldn't normaly do. Now our close friend Kim lives in town so she and her husband are apart of the "husband night". One time for "husband night" we had a Luau. We decorated the whole house with flowers and liues and made a huge tropical dinner that we ate on the floor- picnic style. It was complete with fresh pineapple, strawberries, Caribean salad, hawiaan bread, coctails...did I mention we ate in our hawiaan bathing suits? haha, seriously. Afterwords we went for a swim in the pool...hello, it was a luau...what else would we do??
Well, as you can see from the pics, last night was another "husband night". This time it was an Italian dinner party. When the boys got home from work the house was dark except for the light of tons of candles and the twinkle lights hanging over the table. We gave them peach Belini's to sip on as they ate bruchetta, and fresh basil and tomato pizza. After the h'orduerves we all sat down to eat Ravioli with brown butter balsamic sauce, pesto linguini, spaghetti with meat sauce and italian salad and homemade bread.
It was all delicious. Then we had desert (which we forgot to take a picture of, dang.) it was Canoli dipped in chocolate with cinamon gelato and we drank Limonata- a fizzy italian lemonade. oh so good...mmm
Oh yeah and as we digested and felt like barfing from eating so many carbs, we watched the movie, "The Italian job". (great movie by the way) It was a wonderful night to remember! Wish you all could have been there!
