Guinness and Prosecco Party

Guinness and Prosecco Party - Courtesy of of Trish and John
A great way to start the evening…

Those that know us well, know that our two fave things are being with friends and eating out -  if we can combine the two, then it’s the makings of a great night out!

So, tonight was a simply the perfect evening, just waiting to happen. Trish and John had prepared a Guinness and Prosecco Party - and it really hit the spot!!! All the usual suspects were there (minus just 2 - Karen was away sailing and Paul had an early call the following morning, so they missed-out) - Tom, Julie, Rosi, David plus Rosi’s friend Penny.

John was good enough to pick me up around 7, together with Tom and Julie, whilst Ann made her way back form a strenuous day at Ragdale Hall!

The gossip was great - and so as the food: Onion Soup, Irish Stew, Fruit Pie, Bread & Butter Pudding and finally a Cheeseboard with enough cheese to feed the whole of Northamptonshire!!

Starters...
Mains...
Dessert...
...and finally, the Cheeseboard

Ann’s busy week caught up with her towards the end, so we left about 11.30 - my guess is that the party carried-on for a few hours more!

Thanks for a GREAT evening Trish (and John for his onion-peeling skills), you were the perfect hosts!
