Angie turned 85 this week so we had a little party in her honor. Dinner planning included a salad with greens from the farmers market. Nothing better than that.
Pumpkins, gourds and mums made the perfect centerpiece for the party table.
Angie and Dottie and Chris and I were the only invited guests at the party. We like to keep it all in the family. Just in case we want to tell stories that we wouldn't want anyone else to hear.
Dottie happened to stop and pick up some Bob's 47 for us to have before dinner. Just a little liquid refreshement to get the appetitie stimulated.
Because the most important thing about the dinner was Chris's famous "Shrimp Pasta". Shrimp, tomatoes, garlic, a bit of cream, salt, pepper, linguine... simple and absolutely divine.
Angie could not be bothered to respond verbally when I asked her how it was. But she did give me the thumbs up.
There was ice box cheesecake for dessert and coffee. Angie told me I made it too strong. She always makes a funny face when she tastes my coffee and tells me "Carol, it's so strong!" I tell her to put more cream in and stop complaining or I won't send any left-overs home with her. She says "this cheesecake is the best you have ever made." She didn't get to be 85 without learning something along the way.
