I think, life wouldn’t be as much fun and enjoyable if we didn’t get to enjoy all those delicious foods with our friends and families. Today, I would like to talk about one such meal which wasn’t only pleasing to my appetite but also unforgettable for some reasons.
I can still vividly remember the 14th of August of last year when I got to enjoy this unforgettable meal with a few friends of mine on a weekend to celebrate the “recovery from illness” of a special friend. By the way, this special friend of ours was suffering from a critical and chronic disease. Then one day, about a year ago, we got a piece of very happy news, and it was, as you probably can already guess, the news of the “full recovery” of our sick friend.
We immediately decided that we were going to take him to his favourite restaurant in our town, where we all used to hang out together on the weekends before, and offer him a very special meal, made with a “secret recipe”. So, we went there and started to enjoy our meals together in that restaurant. Then we all noticed that our friend, just recovering from his illness, was trying to wipe up the tears from his eyes, apparently because of the overwhelming emotion and happiness of being close together with his dear friends, again.
By the way, during that meal, we even sang some of our favourite songs together for old time’s sake. Besides, we also laughed a lot there because the “secret recipe food”, which we enjoyed there, was nothing but a recipe for a very delicious and popular Italian cuisine except, of course, he didn’t know it!
Anyway, after finishing the meal, I thought that it was a very special one, mainly because it had brought back some of my best and old memories – memories of being with all my special friends- back again. It was unforgettable also because it was celebrated on a special occasion when one of my dear friends literally got his “life back” again.
