I gave up doing the low carb thing for summer. We had fusilli carbonara, made with prosciutto (it was getting on) and pecorino Romano. It was yummy, maybe a bit salty. Had a very simple salad (curly lettuce & shaved onion) with homemade garlic vinaigrette.





Dessert was frozen, berry daiguiris. I knew that Magic Bullet was good for something.

Thanks for the pics. Looks like reasonable sized portions and either large knives & forks or smallish dinner plates. Once sliced, prosciutto does not seem to hold up well.

I rarely cook on Fridays, having decided many moons ago that Friday is Claire's night off. We ate at the brew-pub in town, then had a friend her for drinks on the porch after.

Everything looks good!!

We had chicken noodle soup. I had half a cheese sandwich and a few pretzels with mine.

The plates are from the '70s. I just measured them. They are 9" in diameter. I like the smaller size of older plates. The knives and forks are from ~1915.

The silverware looks very elegant.

Thank you. It's not something I would have bought. It was part of my mother's estate. I don't think she ever used it. I think she bought it so my sister and I would inherit it. I use it every day, since it doesn't break.
