So my “P” for today is Private Party.  You’ve already seen several birthday celebrations for Ralph.  Sunday was his actual birthday.  Yes, he IS a tax day baby.  Luckily our taxes were all tidied up weeks ago.  For once, we got something done ahead of time! ;-)

I decided that I wanted to take him some place special.  I was looking for a brunch somewhere but then I remembered the Riverwinds Restaurant.  We’ve been there several times before and always enjoyed it.  Best part was…it’s only  5 minutes from our house.

I should have taken a photo of the view of Philadelphia, but because of where our table was, I couldn’t get a good angle.  So I’ll show you a handsome man with his lunch…

He had an Angus cheeseburger on a brioche roll.  He said it was really delicious.

There aren’t a lot of vegetarian choices on the menu at Riverwinds, but when I’ve been there in the past I’ve always had good luck with the pasta primavera.

You can have it with either a red sauce or white sauce.  I chose the white sauce and it tasted as if it was made with wine.  I’ve had pasta primavera in a lot of places but I have Never had it prepared better.  I even said to Ralph that the chef couldn’t have made it better if he tried.  I was Very satisfied.  Yum.

Me and Ralph after our lovely lunch.  I was very happy that we did this and I must tell you how reasonable it was.

We’ didn’t have dessert at Riverwinds because I had something else on my mind.  Where else but Ice Cream Kids.  Yes, it’s actually within walking distance so we are there quite often.  We don’t walk…perhaps we should! ;-)

We had picked up sister Ele before going.  That’s her creamscicle ice cream in the rear and my key lime pie in the front.  This was delicious!

The Birthday Boy with his vanilla cone.  We had a great day!

So that’s a little insight into our private party.  I think it was a great choice for the letter “P”.

I usually have a lot more food for WIAW but I think my primavera certainly covered the mission of extra veggies.

Thanks for joining me here today.  Be sure to check out the Blogging A to Z site and Peas & Crayons to check out WIAW.  Do some reading, leave some comments.

Happy WIAW!  I’m going to have to think “Q”uick to come up with something for tomorrow!
