The birthday was a few days ago but the celebration was last night --an amazing meal with family and friends . . .
There were artichokes, salad with blackberries and pine nuts, and a beautiful berry palova to finish.
Claui did most of the cooking; our friend Kasie made the bruschetta; and all the young uns pitched in to help.
What a great way to celebrate my 70th birthday! I'm a lucky woman. . .
but you knew that.
