The Birthday Dinner

Last night was Joe’s belated birthday celebration. Fifty-seven!! I am married to an old man 😉

I needed some quick appetizers. These cheese sticks did the trick.
Blowing out the candles. The “cake” was a pumpkin, wild cranberry bread pudding, with a warm caramel cause and whipped cream. It was made by my our friend Barb and OMG it was to die for!! I’ve asked for the recipe and will post it here if I get it.
One of the people who ended up at our table last night was a visitor from Africa. His name was Vino and he got quite a chuckle when he saw the label on one of our wine bottles.
Of course we weren’t going to let Vino get away without playing Iris’ drum she brought back from Ghana when she was there last year. He played a bit; Iris played a bit; the only thing missing was to get the birthday boy up doing some African dancing!
