50th Birthday Celebration

We celebrated our friends' joint 50th birthdays tonight with a special Asian dinner menu and everything turned out fabulously, if I do say so myself! the place settings you see above are from Pier 1, and the Asian symbol for longevity was perfect for a birthday bash.

Here's the menu - call me if you need details on any dish.
