For us, the special occasion was a new porch, and having almost all of the kids together, and just a nice Sunday Night Family Dinner (I'm the adopted stray in the group). We had this Classic American Champagne as Mimosas. But it can be had plain as well. It is a great "Champagne" for a crowd. Spicy, bubbly, easy to drink, and when well chilled refreshing and crisp.
We had it with grilled lamb, roasted potatoes and tomatoes, and a green salad.
MEH and I made a Banana Cake for dessert,
JPH frosted it with a chocolate Ganache.
It was yummy with fresh fruit, freshly whipped cream,
and a dollop of Cappuccino Gelato.
The leftover cake will be even better
when we have it for breakfast
with a nice cup of coffee, and S.
She missed dinner tonight.
Darn plane schedules.
