Beefy's Bon Birthday



With all this talk of food from yesterday's post, I realized that I hadn't given you any indication of the gastronomical delights that I had on my birthday in July. (One month into 40 and I take great relief that bodily functions and teeth are remaining intact. Whew!) So here is the glorious shindig and the accompanying photos of the amazing dinner prepared by my friend and fellow foodie Georgina (now a CIA graduate!). It was amazing! But I'm guessing you're about to figure that out on your own anyway. Bon app├ętit!






That "B" could have stood for "birthday", "Beefy", "Bradford", or "breakdown".
If ever the emotional comfort of food was felt... this was the time. Sigh.
