Vivian Danielsen spent a week at a cooking school in Tuscany last Fall and
returned with new culinary skills.
She showed off this new expertise on a cool Saturday evening in January.
A Focaccia con Olive.
Jonathan and Whisper With a Tolmach Oven Baguette.
Bietole al Forno.
A nice bottle of 2000 vintage Brancaia Chianti Classico con la cena di Viviana.
After dinner, Vivian brought out a special birthday cake...Tiramisu by Jesper.
Vivian sang operatically, allowing each birthday victim the opportunity to blow
out a few candles.
Tom used some Modern Aire to blow out a few candles.
Lucy blew out a few flames.
Shortly before we needed to phone the local fire brigade, Joe took a whack at
blowing out some candles.
He had a bit of difficulty in discerning which ones were still lit as brightly
as was he!
Vivian then offered a plate of biscotti.
Amy had a birthday gift, as well.
Tom was a leading light for this party.
Piacere di Viaggiare!
Both Tom and Vivian are avid motorcyclists.
Toni holds up one of Joe's birthday gifts.
Vivian is a big fan of pickles.
Both Vivian and Amy received a special "soap detergent" for Shop-A-Holics.
