On Saturday, we celebrated two occasions in our family. One I spoke of before--our 22nd Anniversary, and the other was our daughter's graduation from college. As part of her present, she wanted to go to a restaurant that we had taken her to since she was small. My husband was born in The Bronx, which for anyone not familiar is a borough of New York City. It was the place many Italians settled when they immigrated to the US, and my father-in-law continued to live there until he passed away in 1998. We have made many trips to his old neighborhood since to visit Arthur Avenue which is often called, "The Real Little Italy". I realize many who visit my blog today from Elizabeth's T Tuesday are not from the US, but I know that most cities all over the world have ethnic areas such as Chinatown or Little Italy or Little Tokyo, so I hope you are not too confused!
After spending some time shopping where we picked up homemade Ravioli from Borgatti's, fresh sweet dry sausage, provolone, and mozzarella from Casa Della Mozzarella, fresh peaches from the market, and pastries from Egidio's,we spent a few more hours exploring The Bronx Zoo. This part was a surprise from my romantic husband because it was where we spent our first (blind) date.
And now what you came to see:
Happy T Tuesday everyone and thanks for indulging me with this long post! Thanks Elizabeth for doing a wonderful job of hosting!
