Christmas In Naples Walk.... Time For Dessert (Page Four)
Dessert warning... We went to That's Amore Italian Restaurant which is just a few miles away!
What is an "Ice Cream Donut Burger?"
Did You Know? - The word "dessert" originated from the French word desservir, meaning "to clear the table." Its first known use was in 1600, in a health education manual entitled Naturall and artificial Directions for Health, which was written by William Vaughan.
In his A History of Dessert (2013), Michael Krondl explains it refers to the fact dessert was served after the table had been cleared of other dishes.
The term dates from the 14th century but attained its current meaning around the beginning of the 20th century when "service à la française" (setting a variety of dishes on the table at the same time) was replaced with "service à la russe" (presenting a meal in courses.)"
Thank You That's Amore fo staying open for us! We called and the chef/owner answered. We said twenty of us are headed your direction and he replied "We will be ready"... He was!
Just down the street from Naples! We arrive en mass!
We love to see the family together
Miss Lilly has got to hit the hay so the Lind's are off...
"We can do this!"
Lilly must say goodnight to everyone!
Just melts our hearts!
"Remember Great Grandma...
We will see you Saturday Christmas Eve at Disneyland!"

Too bad Zack had to miss the picture with the other grandsons!
Catching up on the score of the ball game!
Nick, Charlie, and Alex get the serious award....
Theo gets the silly award
Meanwhile at the other end of the table we have heavy duty kibitzing underway
Did You Know? - Kibitzer is a Yiddish term for a person who offers (often unwanted) advice or commentary. This term is used for a non-participant spectator in contract bridge, chess, go, and many other games.
The verb kibitz can also refer to idle chatting or side conversations.
Bob, Paul, and Joe... Always a laugh going on!
Charlie and Bob hit it off...
"Yes.... I am adorable"
"What is this?"
Bob and Alex hit it off!
"I will only eat this much!"
