A Leola's get-together -- Pam's birthday

Last week we celebrated Pam's birthday with a little party at my house. Brenda made her chicken salad and egg salad that she used to make for her tearoom "The Lodge". She had the tearoom several years ago in a big flea market in Ozark and it was wonderful -- especially her food. She made the edible bowls out of refrigerator biscuits that she stretched over small pyrex bowls and baked in the oven. It was a great idea and totally edible. I fixed bruschetta with tomatoes I bought at farmer's mkt. and my very own basil and garlic. I purchase asiago cheese bread from Panera (they make their own bread) and grill it in the oven with olive oil, garlic and parmesan cheese. Then top it with my tomato, basil, garlic and olive oil mixture -- nothing better. We added some delicious watermelon and what a feast! The cupcakes are Judy's and she served them on a cupcake holder she purchased in Door Co.

Brenda fixed a wine drink. She cut up fresh peaches, added some sugar and let it set for about an hour. You drink the wine then serve the peaches for dessert. Yummy!!!!So happy birthday to Pam. Our next birthday will be Brenda's in July. Hope everyone has a great week and finds some reason to celebrate. I'm celebrating the fact that it's cooler and dryer in Missouri and Linda's bringing her tiller over to help in my garden. I took the day off from Leola's and plan to get caught up on a few things.

Jan, your home just must be the perfect place to throw a party. Sounds so cozy and inviting. Again, I wish I had been there with you girls, even though I don't know Pam. Your pictures of all the dishes made my mouth water. I think I'll go get a big dish of ice cream.

Happy Birthday Brenda!
