Louie is 10! Happy Birthday, Louie!
Today is Louie's 10th Birthday!
My how the time flies!
This year we decided to have a simple "intimate" dinner party rather than a big party. Last night was the dinner.
The guests were Mary Ann, Dean, Ruth, and Louie's girlfriend, Pearly.
The people dined on Peruvian Chicken, Mixed Grains, and a salad of Mushrooms and Asparagus.
The dogs enjoyed doggie cookies and anything they could pick up off the floor...there was particular interest among the dogs in the hors d'ouevres, particularly the cheese plate.
For dessert, the dogs enjoyed a peanut butter and carob cake. There was great anticipation of the cake while the candles were being lit.
The people had Strawberry Chiffon Cake and Fresh Strawberries.
I've started this blog to provide an informal place to share my restaurant, shopping and travel discoveries. My main focus is on the San Francisco Bay Area, but, when I travel out of the area, I report on these places as well.
From 1982 until the end of 2008, I published Beverly Dubrin's Where-To-Guide, a private newsletter about dining, shopping, and travel.
I also do freelance writing on similar subjects and have authored newspaper, magazine, and web articles as well as portions of San Francisco Bay Area guide books.
My newest accomplishment is TEA CULTURE, a beautifully illustrated 144-page book about Tea in modern day society. It is packed with all kinds of information and stories about tea, its history, the different kinds of tea, and lots and lots of recipes for tea drinks and foods to enjoy with tea. TEA CULTURE is sold at bookstores and online book sellers throughout the English-speaking world.
