The Queen and I are another year older.
My friend BJ made a most splendid lunch for me and some girlfriends for
our my birthday last Sunday.
She went all out, starting with vodka, jellied shooters with raspberries......
followed by a salad of hearts of palm, avocado, corn and tomatoes with a lime dressing. Then grilled sole with veg and my favorite desert, 'iles flottant'.
The best silver and linen came out, as well as some gorgeous flowers.
I cleaned up on presents as well....Veronica came with wonderful, huge pottery bowl from Scott Barnim, she knew I had always admired his work. Home made marmalade from Brigid, lots of super flowers, perfume from my daughter in law. The girls also gave me a subscription to Selvedge magazine, and R gave me a subscription to The Manchester Guardian.
BJ also made loot bags for all ..... caramelized popcorn with cashews, Mmmmmm, I demolished mine later that day.
I must say, I have some wonderful friends.
