Happy Birthday Greg!!

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
My dear friend Greg.

I wish you the best for today :)

May you become a hundred and torture with the same passion your staff for many many years :)

Since you grew a year older, I wish you took the advices of the Queen more seriously and obey Her when She orders you to go to bed :D :D

Be a hundred old man!

Love

Viv.

Thanks, all! Just finished with my birthday dinner at an Afghani restaurant across the street from where I live. Extraordinary! I probably ate everything wrong, but it was excellent anyways. Their baklava may become a new addiction for me.

Anneke, you are partially right about my friend Jim; he is clearly nuts.

Sorry to be late to wish you a happy birthday. I'm so glad you had a good time.


I must say I am curious about the Afghany restaurant where you celebrated your bday. Could you please share the menu?

I would also like to see some of these recipes...

many times when I do internatinal theme events I look to these types of foods to present instead of the boring pasta station and carvery and stirfry station.

One of the items that my clients enjoy is shinwari kebobs which I serve with burani (veggies with yogurt)

Ok, back to the birthday thread
