Last weekend we went up to Erie for the first family reunion that we've had in years. The reunion was held at Presque Isle State Park and was coordinated by my mom and uncle... Instead of everyone bringing a dish we had the food catered by "Lakeshore" Teresa's Deli. We had all of the Italian fare, just like homemade too... pasta with meatballs, sausage, peppers and onions, antipasto salad, roasted chicken and cheesy potatoes. Everyone also brought a dessert, we had tons and tons of food... you know how it is with us Italians! ;)
It was a nice to see everyone again and to have fun time.
When Matt and I were leaving the park, before we checked into our hotel and headed over to my uncles house, we made a pit stop at Sara's to get their famous orange vanilla twist... It's been years since I've had their ice cream and it was a first for Matt, as it was as good as I remember, plus the price you can't beat! We got 2 cones for under $5!
On Sunday we went back to my Aunt and Uncles house and helped them out with a few things, they then brought my mom, Matt and I to the Avonia Tavern for lunch. Matt, my aunt and uncle got the prime rib sub, my mom got the philly steak and cheese and to the right, I got the Veggie Panini with grilled eggplant, roasted red peppers, onions, tomatoes, and provolone cheese. The food was really good!! :)
After lunch, we did a little shopping around Erie then made our way home to Pittsburgh... by the time we got home I didn't feel like cooking... So we ordered Pizza from Rib Kens. We normally stop there to grab a 6 pack or pick up a few micro brews but we have never tried the food. We ordered a buffalo chicken pizza, which was pretty good and left us with even more left overs!
Well, that was last weekend... Didn't cook at all this week, just reinvented left overs :) So back to the kitchen this week for me!
