looks like a fantastic way to turn 21! (I hope the food was just as good as the wine!)

Reasonably simple . . .

  • An assortment of cheeses, olives, fennel, homemade kale chips, and more for starters.
  • Roast Chicken with Herbes de Provence; wild mushroom risotto; Caesar salad.
  • Homemade lemon bars and a chocolate mousse cake.
