We celebrated Moe's birthday
For dinner I made Cioppino
with Dungeness Crab,
local Spot Prawns, Clams and Halibut. With grilled, garlic olive oil brushed baguette.
Served with a bottle of Mumm Champagne.
And for dessert we had a Strawberry Meringue Roulade.
It is a tradition to always have a Birthday cake/dessert with strawberries on his birthday.
Moe grew up in Windsor, Ontario and strawberries were always out in May.
And as luck would have it,
I found the first local strawberries of the season
here in the Cowichan Valley.
