For my boss’ birthday, we celebrated with a delicious, freshly prepared meal. She loves Paris and so we gave her a French-themed luncheon complete with ratatouille, beef bourguignon stew, spinach salad (with candied walnuts, red anjou pears, and gorgonzola cheese), and almond torte. Oh! Don’t forget the (not so French) Turkish baklava. YUM. Throw in some virgin mimosas and call it perfection. We had a blast cooking with our other boss who went to culinary school.
