Julie’s 50th Birthday Dinner

Paula hosted a dinner to celebrate our good friend Julie Downes’ 50th birthday. Julie’s birthday was actually back in February but she arrived last month from London for a three month stay.

Paula had looked up the recipe for Killer Shrimp, which has gone out of business. The taste was actually very, very close, perhaps needing a little more kick to it, but otherwise excellent. Paula also barbecued a mound of the moist pork ribs that she’s famous for. For dessert, cheesecake with fresh raspberries, and Stephanie and Morgan had made chocolate covered strawberries to take over. Lots of food; Ron was absolutely stuffed.
