For my birthday I made a dinner that could have feed 20. And for the ten of us there were leftovers for lunch the next day. As usual I didn't take a single picture of the food. It was a very fin and delicious night.
that is my birthday cake known a Peach Melba but made with nectarines instead and served with raspberry sauce. i topped it with pretty edible pansies and was given a votive candle to blow out. as i had over looked that detail since i made the whole dinner and cake from scratch by myself. which i might not ever do again. especially on ones own birthday.
