Birthday Celebration...with Pictures


The birthday was a few days ago but the celebration was last night --an amazing meal with family and friends . . .

Pasta with wonderful meatballs, roasted broccolini and onions, bruschetta . . .

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.
