Birthday Gathering

October 20 , 2012 by: Hong Birthdays, Food, Weekend

On Friday night I hosted a dear friends birthday dinner. All the gals gathered together and enjoyed a lovely Fall Harvest themed menu.



Roasted Figs with Goat Cheese, Drizzled with Balsamic

Sauteed Grapes with Goat Cheese and Tarragon


Roasted Chicken with Root Vegetables

Broccolini and Squash Lasagna


Apple Crisp with Ice-Cream

True to the code of friendship, my girlfriends helped out with preparing most of the meal. I made the appetizers and was in charge of the “atmosphere”. It was a great way for me not to feel too overwhelmed and gave me an opportunity enjoy the meal. Doesn’t food always taste better when someone else makes it???

“The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate.”

To LK and all my girlfriends, thank you for sharing your lives with me. Here’s to many more celebrations!

  • Spent the weekend at anchor in Liberty Bay. These types of weekends alway remind me of how little we really need in life; nourishment, warmth, love, and a little attention. Happy Earth Day.
  • One of the things I love most about travel is the the discovery of universal languages such as food and an appreciation for culture. Some cities of course are better hosts than others at this but the discovery is part of the magic. This concludes my travel posts but I’ve decided to resurrect my blog to post more photos and tips specifically about Lisbon since some of you have inquired. More to come! ❤️
  • Lisbon; lively and busy but time stand stills. Modern with lots of character and respectful of traditions. Do yourself a favor and book your next trip to Lisbon. .
