Anne and David, above, in front of my house just before we said good-bye as they were leaving to return home to Florida....sob, sob!
The night before we had a delicious and fun dinner where we were joined by brother, Ev. Because LM's son, John, is now working part time at a very fine little restaurant in West Dennis, Norabella we decided to give it a try and it was a wonderful experience. Norabella is chef owned and a tiny place. The food is very fresh and imaginative, using many local ingredients. Our server was very knowledgable, fun and accomodating.
We started off with two appetizers...friend polenta with an olive tapenade served on prosciuto....sublime!
and....lobster ravioli with a perfect light tomato cream sauce...every flavor was so distinct.
Ev chose this swordfish dish with many wonderful fresh vegetables.
LM thoroughly enjoyed this seafood dish served over angel hair...
David and I chose the sauteed schrod served with risotto and asparagus, topped ith lobster. AMAZING flavors.
John made himself a dinner when he had a kitchen break and he came to share it with us. Dad caught chewing!
It was such a fun and delicious evening and we, of course, HAD to try dessert. This is the tiramisu, and I had a beautiful cannoli with a filling of ricotta, orange peel, chocolate and pistachio.
Lovely time....happy, happy!
