I have been celebrating my upcoming birthday today with a lunch for the girl friends and my mother (could be referred to as the extended family).
We started off the lunch with a sparkling cocktail, a rhubarb version of French 75, where the plain gin and lemon juice had been replaced with rhubarb gin and rhubarb cordial. A glass of bobbles always get the talking going :-)
The lunch menu was Skagensrøre, patty shells with asparagus and scrimps and pie with bacon, mushrooms, spinach and Gryere cheese.
Afterwards a cheese board followed by cream cake with rhubarb compote and white chocolate cream and strawberry-champagne marzipan sweet treat. I will be sharing the various recipe from this birthday lunch in the very near future.
As birthday gifts I got Haute Couture Tea from TWG Tea and a green ceramic vase. And as you can see, my girl friends have a great grip of my favourite colour :-)
