On Father's Day, we beat the crowd by making a dinner reservation for 4:30 p.m. at Mazzeo's Ristorante in Western Massachusetts.
The place is on the dark side but has a nice atmosphere.
Waiters and waitresses were super nice.
Shown right below was garlic infused olive oil right on the table, ready to pour into a little puddle on a plate and dip pieces of bread into.
Of course, we had to have a sip of wine to celebrate the day.
I had Fettuccine Stefano which had dried tomatoes, mushrooms, peas, and chicken chunks in a cream sauce.
Bella, bella, it was divine.
(Finished part of it for lunch the next day.)
Hubs had veal medallions with caper lemon butter. Mmm mmm mmm
(Sorry, no photo of the veal because by the time I thought of taking it, the meal was half-eaten and I didn't think that would make a very appetizing photo.)
We had salads, too, and I ordered a creamy dill dressing which was quite tasty.
Hubs had oil and vinegar on his salad.
He had chocolate gelato for dessert, which I skipped since my main entre was probably eight zillion calories.
All told, it was a great day, filled with blessings, and spent with a really wonderful dad----my hubs!
There was never any sacrifice too large for him to make for our kids.
They were (and are) the most important beings in his life.
He sacrificed for them, stayed in some horrible job situations just to support our family, and loved all of us with all of his heart.
He believed the most important thing about being a father was to teach our children about the importance of living life for God.
When we do that, everything falls perfectly into place.
Anyway, regarding our dinner out, the best part of all was that it cost us nothing because a dear brother-in-law gave us a certificate to Mazzeo's as a gift.
Wish we could celebrate Father's Day again tomorrow!
