Peter Celebrates the Big Five O (+)

Stuffed grape leaves, and fancy cheeses.  Goat cheese and fig jam on bruschetta.   Green grapes.  Some bubbly to toast.   M and D brought the most drinkable wine.  A secret in the carafe, a blind test.  Carlo Rossi. No kidding. Beat out the pricey Portuguese wine.  What do we know?

Dates and nuts in a chocolate South African pudding recipe, topped with whiskey whipped cream, created by his wife Janice.  Happy Birthday to Peter.  Live music at a party makes the evening rhyme. Marc on harmonica and Peter and Doug on guitar.  Kim sang a number with the lyrics on her cell phone.

A fun surprise party.  Well done, J.

  1. Happy Birthday wishes to Peter from me as well Ruth and the photo’s are just gorgeous as usual. Great shots hon. 🙂 *hugs*

  2. Birthday festivities- South African pudding – sounds sublime. Congratulations, Peter and blessings for the year ahead.

  3. Ruth, what a treat! This is a surprise upon a surprise! You’ve created a veritable photo essay of my surprise birthday party — all of it online and looking fantastic, an hour or two after it happened! You’re amazing! Thank you!

  4. Dear Ruth,
    Thank you for such a lovely record of the evening – Peter had a ball and your photos are the ‘icing on the cake’. It was fun to get the old ‘winers’ together again – we are all just as rowdy and opinionated as ever – no mellowing with age in this bunch!!

  5. I don’t know any of you personally but I sure wish I did!! Peter, Happy belated 50th birthday!! Hope you have at least 50 MORE!!

  6. Live music at a party is super fun! And a surprise party is even more so. It looks like everyone had a terrific time. 🙂

Thanks for your visit. It's always good to hear you stopped by.
