An Italian Thanksgiving....

Every once in a while, amongst the chain e-mails and spam, I receive a circulated message that brings me back.  Well with Thanksgiving right here, I thought I would share this email which pretty much finds my address each year.
I think many of you will appreciate the Italian Style Menu..... Happy Thanksgiving!

An Italian Thanksgiving
ITALIAN THANKSGIVING
When I was a kid growing up, Thanksgiving was a day to reflect on what we had to be thankful for and to see my family together.
After this peaceful moment, of no one screaming at each other, it was time to eat! ANDIAMO!


Now Italians do it all little bit different than the rest, but what else is new.
First we start with:


ANTIPASTO
then LASAGNA or
MANICOTTI (depending on what you had last year) with
MEAT IN THE GRAVY
then SOUP
Now we get to the Meal:
TURKEY
STUFFING
ROASTED POTATOES
BROCCOLI RABE
and / or ESCAROLE
ROASTED RED PEPPERS
SAUTEED MUSHROOMS
SAUTEED STRINGBEANS (picked from the vine in the backyard garden)
THE BREAD (that nonna made)
and GOD FORBID YOU FORGET THE SALAD!!!
(picked from the backyard garden with homemade wine vinegar)


To wash it all down, we had:
HOMEMADE WINE
and 7 UP (IN THE GLASS BOTTLE)
Then after the men had a 2 hour nap and the woman cleaned all the dishes, we had:
CHESTNUTS
MIXED NUTS
FRESH FRUIT
DRIED FIGS
and FINOCCHIO
Then we started the dessert:
ITALIAN COOKIES
SFOGLIATELLE
CANNOLIS
and ITALIAN PASTRY (just in case we missed something)
During this feast we enjoyed a nice EXPRESSO with
MARIE BRIZARD ANISETTE or
ROMANA SAMBUCA
Then after that we needed a little something for DIGESTIVO


We went straight for the BRIOSCHI!!!





HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL MY PAISANI
