An Evening with the Serino Clan

Let me start off by saying that I'm absolutely and completely stuffed! Yet another entertaining evening filled with good food and good friends. I'm surprised that I'm able to move enough to type anything, yet the events of this evening have truly inspired me to share. Mike, Ri and I were invited to have dinner at Susan's house to celebrate the return of the prodigal son, Silver. Sierra highly encouraged us to meet at 20 for a cocktail before dinner while her mom watched the boys. We exchanged some lively conversation, and it was nice to see 3/4 of the Serino siblings laughing together.

You see, Silver is somewhat of an infamous "dude". He pretty much survives on his incredible snowboarding talent, living a life supported by Analog and the love of his fans. He is also a very kind man who really knows how to party. A good combination for a guy in his 20's.

After our cocktails, we headed to Jersey to Susan's house. The smell of all kinds of goodness hit us the minute we walked through the door, not to mention the offer of cold beverages. There were a dozen of us in all, and we hung out and either enjoyed the sunshine...

wrestled in the living room...

or watched the action in the kitchen....

Once that action was completed, the real entertainment began. It was an all out feast. Susan outdid herself again with a meal fit for, well, a prince (Silver!). Spaghetti with meatballs, hot sausage AND sweet sausage, ravioli with Alfredo sauce, a killer salad, and garlic bread that melted in my mouth. It was an extremely enjoyable meal in both taste and conversation.

Susan even topped the feeding frenzy off with a birthday cake for all of those birthdays that hadn't yet been celebrated. It was red velvet cake, which is my favorite. Susan, if you are reading this, thank you so very much for a great time. You really know how to make us feel like part of the family!
