Sunday funday

We had the most magnificent birthday lunch at Kim's last Sunday - the SFC was the perfect venue and with good booze and food plus awesome company, good times were guaranteed.

Now, I'm no style guru, so make sure you pop over to White & Wander to find out deets of the theme (think clam shells and fishing nets, gorgeous!) so I'll put my efforts into describing the food.

Oh, the food!

Here's the hostess with the mostest in all her glory.

Hello mojitos!

My little contribution to the day. Nacho dip. So creamy. So good. Recipe to follow.

Best drinks bar I've seen in a long time. Kim made me my first ever negroni. And I liked it. A lot. (Although mine had a lot more OJ than this decadent recipe!)

Emma's handywork. Wowee.

Marinated chook, Greek oregano and garlic lamb and scrummy salsa salad (sweetcorn, avocado, tomato, spring onion, coriander, lime juice and bean mix - black beans if you can get them)

Calabrese salad, age old favourite of rocket, pear and parmesan. . . with walnuts. More chook.

Ta da! The table

My over filled plate. Complete with Kimberlee's Mum's secret potato bake.

I should mention there was also beautiful crusty sourdough and drinks coming out of our ears.

Then the icing on the cake as far as I'm concerned. . . . Magnums for sweets. Yummy!

Bursting at the seats and with our belts loosened, we sat our the back drinking Croser and challenging Pippa and Emma to artwork masterpieces . . . with chalk in the courtyard.

To top it all off, I left to meet other friends for a drink . . . then popped back to do it all again with leftovers later that night.

Best. Day. Ever!

you have such great photos of the day kate! and i swear you make my cooking look much better than it was..... And how good are the negroni's - thank goodness for Pip's twist on it, adding OJ - i may just be having one now (my excuse is the OJ i bought has use by date of today, don't want it to go to waste, and i'm adding soda water as well!) - thanks for the dip, totally delish. How fab was Pip and Emma with the 'box of 100 chalk for $1 from the philippines'? - unfortunately the rain yesterday took the shine of the images - just means we need to do it again soon!!!!! xxxxxoxxxx
