Instead, we put the kids to bed. They fell asleep quickly since they were running fevers and had been sick all day.
We turned on some Pavarotti and made the most delicious Stromboli I have ever had. Recipe is here. To finish off the night, we cuddled up on the couch with a pint of Spumoni Gelato from the local Italian deli and turned on "Under the Tuscan Sun."
It was very enjoyable. Even my husband liked it. I found myself thinking what it would be like to just drop every part of your old life and start new in a different country. Crazy!!! I guess it works for some people, but maybe not for me. Not alone any way. :)
So, next time you need a date night with your hubby but can't get out of the house, or can't afford to go out to dinner. Stay home and have a great night.
