The beginning of March we celebrated our good friend's 65th birthday in Lake Arrowhead. What a beautiful and relaxing time that was. A special birthday meal was prepared for him (and we all joined him in filling our stomachs).
An Irish meal came next giving us an excuse to serve corned beef and cabbage alongside homemade Irish soda bread ending with a phenomenal spiced gingerbread topped with Guiness dark carmel sauce and a dollop of vanilla ice cream.
Our Valentine dinner consisted of bacon wrapped filet, hasselback potatoes, grilled tomatos stuffed with broccolini, fresh fruit salad with grated whole cinnamon and grated whole nutmeg. A special spicy shrimp cocktail was the opening dish.
First we had to set a pretty table for the special meal......
