Dinner at the Three Peace Restaurant

 Meet "Pierre." He's really my brother-in-law, Allen, in disguise. For Christmas he and my sister Peach (alias "Suzette") gave Tom and me a gift certificate for dinner for two at the Three Peace Restaurant, for an evening to be determined. We could come to their home and they would serve us a gourmet meal. They included with the gift certificate a menu from which we could select our appetizers, entree and dessert. We settled on last night, Tom's birthday, for our night out at the Three Peace Restaurant.

From the moment we arrived and found a parking space in the driveway prepared for us until our final good-bye, we were treated to a thoroughly delightful evening.

Pierre met us at the door, a towel draped over his arm, and walked us to the table, beautifully set near the window, overlooking the front garden. He anticipated our every need and served us with grace.

We chose the stuffed mushrooms and the fruit with dip for our appetizers. Truly they would have made a delicious and satisfying meal by themselves.

The spinach raspberry salad featured slivered almonds and something sweet and crunchy, along with the mandarins and raspberries and a delicate dressing.

I was enjoying myself so much that I forgot to take a photo of the dinner plate -- New York steak, grilled to perfection with a round of garlic butter on top, baby roasted potatoes and garden green beans with bacon.

Dessert was Chocolate Raspberry Cake with a fine cup of tea for me and coffee for Tom.

After dinner we were invited into the kitchen to meet Suzette! Can that girl cook!

One of the nicest things about the evening was to see that they seemed to be having as much fun as we were. Their eyes sparkled with joy and with love for us. The food was, without question, exquisitely prepared and beautifully presented, but it was the love that was served that made the meal so very special.

Peach and Allen, thank you so much. We were completely blessed by this marvelous evening.

I can't think of any more imaginative way to show one's love for special people. What a birthday!
