We celebrated a lot of things at this dinner with our friends.  A new grandchild on the way for them, an engagement announcement from their son and a book launching party.

These truly were causes to celebrate and, as ‘great minds often think alike’, we had planned to start the evening with champagne, and so had they.

This dinner was civilized, casual and comfortable. Here’s the menu.
