Ladies At Lunch
On Tuesday 20th June thirty-nine U3A Vall del Pop Ladies went to Restaurante La Piscina, in Parcent. We all gathered at 1pm for a lunch at 1.30pm. With the unseasonably cool weather we had experienced for our previous lunches, where we were indoors, it was a pleasant change to be sitting out under the canopy and trees of the restaurant, feeling the warmth of the sun and gentle breeze through the trees.
Once we were all settled the staff delivered our drinks, wine or water which was included with our meal. The restaurant offered us shared starters of pan, aioli and tomato salsa, mixed leaf and chicken salad, salad Rusa, mini burgers.
Our main courses were pre-ordered, from a choice of Salmon, Sole, Swordfish, Lamb, Lamb chops, Wild Boar, and Chicken. There was a freshly prepared vegetarian selection of starters and a choice of Vegetable Lasagna, Cannelloni or a vegetarian paella (Min 2 persons), this was completed with a choice of sweets or coffee. All served in a friendly and efficient manner.
Birthday congratulations were given to Sally Ellis and Sandra Mansfield, who found out they celebrated their landmark 60th birthdays on the same day. All replete, those who were lucky enough, retreated to their swimming pools to cool off.
We are taking a couple of months off and will resume our popular Ladies At Lunch in September. If you are interested in joining the U3A Vall Del Pop and our Ladies Lunches in the future more details can be found on the website.
