Our 19th anniversary dinner in Tuscany

We went for the first time to one of our biggest local attractions, where many of my family members have traveled all the way from Long Island to visit but we have ignored in nearly three years;
Mohegan Sun Casino. We chose to eat in Tuscany, a uniquely situated,  though loud restaurant in the shopping mall section.. The noise was provided by the casino's constant music, the Saturday night rowdy crowd, and the rushing waterfall behind us.Some sections of the restaurant are behind the falls, but it was very interested to dine near a waterfall, even though it was hard to speak to each other without shouting.
Hardly an intimate dinner, but the wine was good,  Francisco's swordfish was outstanding and my goat cheese Tortellini with smoked squash, honey walnut sauce was heavenly. Its a nouvelle cuisine, big plates, tiny portions place, good for the figure, but don't go there hungry.Mohegan Sun has many dining options, you can go to the all you can eat buffets, we chose atmosphere and fancy cuisine considering the occasion.. 
 We did a bit a sightseeing in the fancy shops, I bought a bar of handmade soap as a souvenir, won $10 in the slot machines (the same price as the fancy soap) and called it a night. Such passes for thrills among us old married folk! Then we came home bearing ice cream so the teens babysitting at home could celebrate our marriage with us.
It was a lovely time. Thank you God for my marriage, my home, and the blessing of family
