It was Farmer Joe's 30th birthday yesterday. With all the farmers now busily making hay and harvesting their crops there wasn't much time for a celebration. Nevertheless, we threw together a casual tapas dinner for some of Farmer Joe's mates.
I whipped up some Sangria using great local sparkling shiraz. It got rave reviews, and by the end of the night the boys were eating the Cointreau-soaked fruit from the bottom of the dispenser.
Our local pub couldn't manage imported Spanish beer, so I just used Peronis and hoped no one would notice (they did - it didn't matter).
And of course, with nine courses to prepare I forgot to take a photo of the table. So we'll have to settle for pretty tealights and a blurry background. A great time was had by all!
