Last Saturday we celebrated the birthday of my Aunt Elaine. This was the first birthday for her since losing her beloved Tom earlier this year. We wanted to show her how special she is to all of us, so a fancy backyard dinner was on the menu.
I set up a long table on the grass, and had a simple menu of wonderful ingredients that we picked up at the Farmers Market that morning.
And of course chocolate birthday cake from Bennison’s in Evanston
I couldn’t have summed up the evening better.
