Diamond Jubilee

I’ve always liked having food/culture/movie themed gatherings. For Italian night back in college, we ate pasta fagioli, wore bed sheets as togas, and watched Goodfellas. We also tried French night and German night with varying degrees of success.
How did we spend Memorial Day weekend? By celebrating Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee of course :) We went all out…
