It's good to have a nice lunch any time but especially on a birthday.
Recently, a special guest came to our house for lunch on her birthday.
The lunch was simple but delicious.
We had a yummy salad with balsamic dressing.
One of my sisters makes dressing with Good Seasons Italian Seasoning packets, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, and water so I just followed her recipe. Added a tablespoon of sugar, too, which made it even more tasty.
Dunkin Donuts croissants are the best so we had some of those, plus, I got our guest a maple frosted donut (her fave) for dessert.
Then, fat, round raspberries tasted great just plain. Their sweet/sour goodness explodes in one's mouth.
Regulars around here are beans and rice so those were served, too.
A plop of sour cream goes on top of the beans.
Little gifties, wrapped in bright red and white paper, surrounded her plate. A couple of them sported white bows with silver sparkles.
To drink, we had Ocean Spray cranberry/raspberry juice. It's absolutely great tasting.
An extra special touch was using shiny cloth napkins.
So that was it. Simple and tasty, the birthday luncheon helped a special guest celebrate her day.
