As promised, here are some pictures of the VERY DELICIOUS meals we had while in Italy. I was never a pasta person prior to this but I guess pregnancy and pasta make for good bed mates. Thankfully, J & I walked A LOT so we didn't put on a ton of weight. As a matter of fact, I went down 2-lbs when we got back.
My first lasagna in over 10-years! It was so so good!
Ziti with sauce...no meat but you wouldn't know you were missing anything because it was THAT good.
Stuffed pasta with meat sauce. YUM!
Can't remember what this was called. J ordered it and as you can see, within minutes, it was almost all gone. It had chunks of beef and larger spaghetti noodles.
Took a pic of the bread because this was the first place we actually got a bread basket with our meal. I guess it isn't common to get a bread basket Italian restaurants there as it is here in the States.
Panini and bruschetta. Authentic Italian Panini. We ordered bruschetta with each meal every single night cause it was just so refreshing and yummy.
Our eating utensils came in this "fancy pouch"...it definitely puts a smile on your face.
Pasta with meat sauce. Oh if I concentrate hard enough, I can actually still remember how good it tasted.
It was THAT good. Granted, J helped me finish it but not by much.
In addition to all the yummy dinners, we also had a serving of gelato everyday to "cleanse our pallets" after our hard day of walking. J's first taste of an authentic Italian gelato. He LOVED it!
Italy was a blast! The time went by really fast but we created some memories we'll always cherish.
Thanks for letting me share my babymoon pics with you. I hope you enjoyed viewing/reading the posts as much as I enjoyed re-living it through this blog.
Have a fabulous week!
