Friends are Wonderful!!

Last night John and I had a wonderful evening with our friends, Patty and Rick! We went to Patty and Rick's house and then drove to a wonderful Italian Restaurant called Portofino's. Patty warned us that this restaurant didn't look like much and was in a a strip mall but the food was fantastic. She was so right!! John had the special, which was tilipia and shrimp, which was served with fresh spinach with a white wine sauce, I had a veal special they were offering. This special was veal with fresh spinach, garlic, onions, etc. with a light sauce, which was fabulous! Patty was certainly right-everything was awesome!! After dinner we chatted for a bit and then made our way back to Patty and Rick's house. We had some tea, played cards, chatted a bit more and then came home. What an absolutely wonderful evening we had!

Evenings like this really make you cherish the friends you have and the good times! Thanks Patty and Rick for a really nice evening!

I have been to Portofino's! Last March on the way to the airport when we were traveling to France. It was delicious.

It sounds like you have a wonderful time with your friends.

That sounds wonderful, Sherri! We haven't done much couples type entertaining and your post really made me want to get back to that.

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
