Eatin’ Good in the Neighborhood

Dinah and Allen invited us to Lucignano to their neighborhood dinner.

These are one of my favorite events of the summer.  Streets are closed, tables set up and everyone comes out to join the fun.

The menu which was an antipasto, pasta, sliced steak, spinach, dessert and all the wine and water you could hold was 17 Euros a person.  A very good deal.

We were a big group, taking up almost a whole table.

Finally, the strong young lads carried out the large table size trays filled with antipasto platters.

From the top, prosciutto, salami, crostini with with beans, spicy tomato sauce, tuna, and chicken livers.  The middle is a farro salad.

The pasta.

And then there was a long wait for the meat.

The volunteers were handing out the wine.  The wait was so long…..

Nancy was considering adoption.


But finally the sliced steak came.  Sorry no picture.  We didn’t last until dessert.

No, this isn’t the sun rising, but setting.  It was a very fun night.  I hope we do it again next year.
