Candlelight Supper....


... and not one Royal Doulton with the hand-painted periwinkles insight!!! What a terrible host am I, LOL!

How can I describe the night? It was a hilarious, easy-going, delicious, wine fuled and utterly entertaining night. The time flew by, especially for those not driving, hee hee! The food was just perfect! None of us will forget Viv's delectable salad with sundried tomatoes, pinenuts and spinach leaves (drool) so glad I saw her make this and is forever stored away in my memory. My smoked salmon pasta with cream, lemon and tarragon (thanks Louise) went down as easily as the copious amounts of wine. And the dessert, also supplied by Viv, topped off what was trully a scrummy meal.

After dinner we decided to play a few games of cards, this is when I remembered to bring out the camera. Seven's was so funny, with some bold people holding back... you know who you are! hee hee! But when we decided to play old maid, well then thats when it got really serious, as seen by the photographs below:

Can you guess who the old maid was??? LOL! You will have to forgive the quality of the images... they looked perfectly fine through the wine goggles I was wearing :-)



What really made the night so wonderful was the company!!! Thank you boys and girls :-) I am so grateful to have you lot in my life (awwwwwww). Here's to many more night candlelight suppers :-)
