Celebration Dinner


My birthday and Julie's (Scottsdale Daily Photo) birthday happened last week just 4 days apart and to celebrate together we decided  to cook dinner at Julie and Dave's (Tamarindo Costa Rica Daily Photo) house on Saturday evening.  Julie picked the recipes from a cook book she bought in California.  We started with an arugula salad with roasted cherry tomatoes and pine nuts.

The main coarse was pork chops with fresh rosemary, oregano, garlic and lemon, served with roasted potatoes and red grapes and brussels sprouts with bacon and pomegranate seeds.













Julie's mom, Glenda supplied the dessert with these designer cupcakes that were delicious!

It was a fun evening and a great celebration!
