My stomach has waited a year for this.
I began attending the annual Festa Italiana about 8 or so years ago. I’m not of Italian descent and I had never really been a fan of Italian food, but I had a friend working the event. He said I should check it out, so I did. That first experience was so great, I have tried to make the event every year since. I even got last year’s newbie stuck on the tradition.
2015 offered much of the same edible goodness as the previous years with my beloved eggplant fries being first on my grub-down list. That is the one item that I have to have every year. I was happy to see the lovely people of La Creperia Cafe were in attendance, although not serving up Italian fare. Lamb shanks were on the menu, which I passed on, but my eating companion indulged. Being that gluten is my favorite flavor, I ended up eating, what seemed like, a mountain of varying types of pastas…and it was GOOD. If only this were every weekend, I would gain that much needed weight in no-time.
