PIERRE SICARD'S BIRTHDAY
Pierre arrived home to find a small little soire had
been planned in his honor.
Our pal Dane was happy to be part of the festivities as was Pierre's daughter
We had a bottle of Champagne which was nicely color-coordinated with Clementine.
The Gonet-Medeville Brut Ros was nice and dry...it doesn't show a lot of the
Pinot fruit, but was a nice wine.
We had a nice little toast...
That's Mrs. Pierre, Aviva and Jesper Jensen, the great Dane.
Amy is still hobbled by her busted ankle, an injury sustained, rumor has it, in
an audition for the TV program "Dancing with the Stars."
A leg of lamb has been out in the barbecue, roasting nicely.
Clementine and Alanna were busy with a lemonade project.
We started things off with a nice little plate of anti-pasti.
Pellehaut's wonderful little dry white wine was superb with the starters...
Jesper made some polenta and enhanced it with porcini mushrooms...this was
Then Pierre carved the lamb...
And Jesper kept his eye on the potatoes...
It was a warm afternoon and the kids were outside where there was a garden hose.
Soon they were completely wet...
Dane was totally soaked as his sister is a good "shot" and was able to
really take aim on the little guy.
Meanwhile, we got serious about dinner.
Nice and crusty roasted potatoes...
The birthday boy could have his cake and eat some, too!
Birthday gifts, too!
Now it was time to make a wish...
...and blow out the candles.
We all enjoyed the cake, especially Clementine.
