Isiiad's Anniversary

IsiiadSpanishDinner6_s

It's official.  I've now been living in my little piece of heaven for one year... and still loving it!

In addition to it's natural beauty, Warrandyte has opened it's arms. I've happened upon the best community known to man.  Every month we gather at someone's home for what's affectionately called "Street Drinks Night".  Over the years it's morphed into a full on dinner. Everyone gets a turn at hosting. At the end of March Isiiad had it's turn.  My son and I decided to make it a Spanish Dinner, so paella and sangria courtesy of the Movida cookbook were the order of the day.  Every one brings food...so tapas, empanadas, Portuguese custard tarts, all arrived with the 33 guests. These photos were taken just before everyone arrived, shortly after all the cleaning and table setting was done.
