Valentine’s Day 2008

The Valentine’s Day party was a big hit! The last guests left at 3am…

Valentine’s Day 2008
Claudia shows off her sexy outfit–
note the fishnet stockings, lace gloves,
Southern Belle hat, and fur pimp daddy coat
Andrea & the Elephant Underwear
Andrea wins a special pair of elephant underwear
with googly eyes.
Serena’s guess of how many conversation hearts
were in the jar was only 143 off!  (She was the closest)

Yes, even Bruce Willis came to the party.

Patrizia does a little dance.
Paolo enjoys the Chicken Salad Patè a Choux Puffs. 
The Chicken salad had sundried tomatoes, apple, 
Spring onions and plenty of black pepper.
Marco comes dressed as a porn star…
or is this his regular attire?
Before the party…Claudia & Fabrizio enjoy the candlelight

Louisa wore a sexy black satin outfit for the occasion.

The games were a big hit (for details see the Valentine’s Party Ideas page).  As was the chocolate fondue (with strawberries, bananas, brownies, and heart shaped cookies to dunk) and whipped cream in a can.  (I’m still enjoying the whipped cream in a can a week later…it’s amazing how much they fit into those little bottles!)

    Looks like a fun time! I don’t see the linzer cookies though! I had to go to Guglhupf and get one after you mentioned them in that other blog entry ! Yum!

    Hallo Carrie, please to meet you!!!

    I forgot to take pictures later on in the evening, that’s why you don’t see the cookies, but they were there! And in force–I ended up eating a lot of them myself afterwards.

    I totally forgot to cook the mini-weiners too! Man. Now we have enough mini-weiners to feed at least half the population of Verduno. I may have to sponsor a little apperitivo get together to use those puppies up!

    I don’t know what it is about mini-weiners but people sure do love them. I made them for a potluck at work and they were one of the first things completely devoured, and they weren’t even hot! LOL. We should come up with some more QM recipes that use them!
