Pre-Birthday Dinner

There were eight friends in attendance for our pre-birthday dinner at the Altman's. We all share a love of travel. We spent 3 weeks in Italy with Fiona and Steve in 2003, and are returning with them next year, where we will be their "tourguides" in northern Italy. Here are our gracious hosts, Fiona and Steve:


Jan and Les were there to share in the fun. We travelled to Italy with them in 2005 and have another trip plannned for September 2008.


Sue and Russ joined in as two more who love travel.They will be vacationing in France this summer.


Dinner began with a platter of imported cheeses, salami, and red pepper spread with lettuce wraps. Brad and I volunteered to make individual artichoke-lemon lasagnas for the first course. They were a big hit, and Brad thought it was his best dough ever!
Fiona prepared a juicy grilled salmon, marinated in raspberry beer. There was asparagas with dried cherries (soaked in Ouzo), rice with cashews, and a Caesar salad. Delicious!

This was a lot of fun and I congratulate you both. Buon compleanno!

You know what Italians call men who wear shirts like those?

Men in the desert LIVE in those Hawaiian shirts! Brad is even wearing his with light LIME GREEN pants!
