Perfect End to the week

This week has been a real mixed bag so I was pleased to see Friday evening and what better way to spend it than indulging in some retail therapy with hubby and finishing with dinner at Carluccios. I love good Italian food so this really hit the spot.

The highlights for me were starter and dessert.

Starter was Antipasto Supremo which is listed on the menu as a sharing plate but you can request an individual portion. Be warned fellow lards, even the individual portions are large:

Mmmmm!  Delicious but huge....and this is the individual portion!

Selection of the best from Italy. Bresaola, Parma ham, Buffalo mozzarella, ventricina & finocchiona salami, balsamic onions, tuna stuffed peppers, artichoke, courgettes, sundried tomatoes, olives, pancetta wrapped prawns and chicken liver pate

And the dessert, oh my god the dessert! I don’t normally like bread and butter pudding but this was absolutely amazing:

Bread and Butter Pudding Italian style!

It goes without saying that next time you are in Carluccios, I’d wholeheartedly recommend giving the chocolate bread and butter pudding a go, even if you don’t usually like that kind of thing
