Italian Wedding Soup

Saturday, my family and I went to a cute little Italian restaurant called- "The Spaghetti Warehouse."

The walls had tons of vintage decorating, and right in the middle was a caboose, which you could eat inside! The food was excellent, the service- marvelous, and the decorating- fun. They had lots of old commercial food posters, like 'Squirt, Coka Cola, ETC.

For dinner I got- Alfredo, shrimp, angel hair pasta, Italian wedding
soup, sour dough bread with garlic butter, and Italian Spumoni. (Cherry, pistachio, and chocolate ice cream.)

I LOVED the Italian wedding soup. That same day I had been
looking at Ina Gartens book, 'Barefoot Contessa Back to the Basics,' and seen the recipe, needless to say- I was excited to find it on the menu!

Several days ago, as I was flipping through the cook book above, I found a recipe for a French Apple tart. I was feeling the need for something sweet so I decided to try it out.

The same day we went to the SPaghetti Warehouse, we also went on a tour of the City. We went on an amazing tour called 'Just Duck Tours.' It was a nice little red bus. But the thing about this bus, is that it went on land, and WATER!! So we got to tour the area from two different angles!! Who invented those things!?!??!
After that we went to the pool, and played some tennis. I m trying to get good at that. I would like to be able to do SOME sort of sport! And plus tennis is cute, and fun!!

I love Italian Wedding Soup too. How can you not love a soup with miniature meatballs?

Oh, I love that kind of soup too!

And the Spaghetti....Warehouse? There's one in St. Louis, MS that's the Spaghetti Factory. And they have the train or trolley car and the spumoni for dessert. Was the spumoni in little chilled metal bowls?

Yeah, St. Louis is pretty cool...I want to visit it again now that I'm old enough to really enjoy it. It was fun last time I was there, but that was quite a few years ago.
