Happy birthday, Mamia

Mamia, my mom’s mom, turned 86 yesterday. Here, she looks pleased after blowing out her birthday cake.

Birthday parties at Mamia’s house are always big banquets, and to survive a dinner at her house, you must learn how to taste everything before deciding what you want to come back for. These are the most picturesque of the food, the others weren’t as photogenic. I didn’t even get to try some of them, like the fish? The lasagna? Of the dishes posted here, I only had the eggplant parmigiana, Tita Carina’s truffle salad, and Tita Timi’s sukiyaki.

This is Floppy. She is waiting for her dinner to be served. She’s a sweetheart.
