Dinner ( the long way around )

We will get to dinner....

Just some pics of again how lovely it was today.
The plants on our steps are just taking on a life of their own.
The light coming into the dining room this morning was just ...Vermeer like
Sitting out on the porch reading the paper this morning, I came across this story about a been-there-forever Coney Island Italian restaurant that is changing to " keep up with the times, etc " 

The featured restaurant is GARGIULO's there near the famed broardwalk and is a much beloved wedding hall type place - do check out the restaurant and check out the WEDDING MENU on the website... just amazing.

So , puts me in the mood for Italian food, bringing to mind one of my online favorites SARAH CAREY's mother's MANICOTTI .

I sort of love the fact that she was raised in a real hippy commune in freaking Woodstock, before heading off to Martha-land.

So, I pretty much followed that recipe - other than making my own marinara sauce, which I really should have blogged about . I did take a pic of the start of it :

Anything that starts with this many onions and anchovies is going to be good.

All we needed was some Dean Martin and one of those crayon drippy chianti bottles!
