This last weekend I celebrated my 37th birthday. What a lovely evening it was. With it being winter here in the southern hemisphere my friends and I were seeing less and less of each other due to the cold so decided to have a good ol fashioned Pot Luck. Boy oh boy was it a great idea! For one it was an affordable way to host lots of people. Also, I hadn't realised it but all my friends are exceptional cooks!
On the table we had...
Bay, Butter and Lemon Roast chooks Ala Me & the kids :)
Salad Stuart xox
French Beef & red wine casserole from Josepha & Family (OMG to die for)
Ricotta & Spinach Stuffed Pasta shells from Fiona (lovely)
Kidney bean walnut cake (sounds odd but tastes like pure heaven) from Tomoko and Arron of Pranah cafe fame
Smoked bacon wrapped meatloaf from Paula (I think i had two pieces yum)
Organic choc loaf with cream & a Rosemary crisp bread both from Katie
Choc chip cookies from Sarah and Zef,
French baguette with aged Stilton from Max and Kate.
Guacamole and tapas from Sarah H.
& Lemon Zest birthday cake from Annie
I highly recommend getting friends around for your next celebration and sampling every ones best. It makes for good community and memories.
Thank you to all my friends and family who made me feel so loved. I am truly the luckiest woman on the planet.
