Gosh Debra, what a wonderful menu. I hope it is the start of a great year for you.
Thanks for your visits and comments - I have done my invoice and am looking forward to 2008!
I just love the Blogging community don't you? - it is something I didn't expect, and really enjoy.

The mint sorbet sounds fabulous!

Hi Margot, the food was great, and as it was spread over several hours I didn't have that awful bloated feeling.

I love blogging too. When Breezy first told me about it I was unsure of it but had a go anyway. Now I am addicted and can't wait to see what my new 'friends' have been up to. xxx

Hi Kathleen, thank you for visiting. The mint sorbet was a revelation as I don't normally like minty foods.

That sounds like a wonderful meal, but I'd need a little lie down afterwards!!
Daebra, if blogging interests you do have a look at, a group of mostly, ladies who have very interesting blogs. Woolyworks is one.

Breezy said...

Well that describes it so much better than me!

Arnold here. Thanks for the translation.My tum was large and shaped like a giant question mark the day after. Took my tum days just sorting it all out, and only just returned to normal hunger pattern.

Hi Debra,

I don't know if you've seen the game of tag on the blogs but I’ve tagged you on my blog.

Hope you had a wonderful Christmas,
Best wishes,
