Girl's Night Out: Italian Style

The church E is working for this summer is fairly small and very community-oriented. On the last Saturday of each month the men and the women takes turns going for a night out to fellowship and eat.

This past Saturday was the girls turn, and we met for bowling and pizza.

It was so natural and I was struck again that I was so far from home – it felt just like a regular girl’s night out! [Despite the language barrier…but that’s for another post] There was chatting, laughing, cheering, consoling, and encouraging.

All the women of the church means all – babies included!

In Italy, the way they eat pizza is really different from ordering pizza in the US. Here, they only have one size (about 14” in diameter?), about 50 different varieties, and everyone orders (and eats!) an entire pizza themselves!

Thankfully I got some good advice + menu translation and loved my pizza, Sfiziosa (sausage, mushroom, mozzarella, gorgonzola—like nothing you’ve had before)

It was a delightful evening.

Holy cow, that's a lot of pizza for one person! Of course, I'm obsessed with pizza, so I think I might like that custom!

That girl is a new momma? She is gorgeous! And your pizza looks (and sounds!) heavenly!

I would say that I could never eat that whole pizza but I know that's a lie - it sounds delish! I love how family/community oriented the church is - sounds like you had a wonderful girls night out!

I literally drooled when I looked at the photo of the pizza. It also reminded me that I need to stop eating now (completely) so I can eat when I get out there and not gain hundreds of pounds.

Love that they bowl out there (silly, I know, but that's cool that it's international)!
