1. Two (2) grills
2. Ravioli
3. Citronella candles
4. A smattering of gold rimmed china
5. Copious amounts of food and alcohol

Plan a menu that captures the best of fresh summer time produce, kills it, and washes it down with cheese, pork, veal, seafood, and cannoli cream. Here is how Jay handled it one recent Saturday – Continue reading
