A couple weeks ago, we had a great dinner with friends. While food was merely the backdrop to an evening together, the meal was delicious and consisted of: insalata caprese, insalata di arancie e cipolle, pasta alla carbonara, pollo al forno con aceto balsamico, formaggio di fossa con miele, parmigiano reggiano con aceto balsamico, gelato al cioccolato, and tiramisu'.
Amongst all this food was hours of conversation. Elliot enjoyed himself, although he fell asleep on the recliner after a while (he refused to fall asleep in his bed; social until the end he is).
Hopefully, this is the first of many such get togethers.
