 It was our village dinner night last week and it was another St Patrick's Day celebration. The last one was Happy Hour but this one was dinner. We sure do like to party here.

It was a special night for the year 12 Rochedale High School catering students. It was the first night for this new intake of year 12 students. They come with their teacher to help in the kitchen and learn from our chefs. They also have to learn how to serve us properly and clear away too. They were very nervous kids but they did a good job. The chef even complimented them too.

Guinness Pie with a Trio of Beef, Lamb and Pork. Mushy Peas, Red Cabbage and Mash.

Ginger crusted Key Lime Pie with Lime and Pistachio Cream

Our dinner coordinator, Ann thanks the students and the chefs.

Some of the Village Singers entertained us and encouraged us to sing along. (12 sec video.)

We enjoyed the night.


  1. It looks like a terrific dinner night. You didn't have to cook yourself, and the food looked more exotic than we ever make for ourselves. But most of all the idea of listening to the Village Singers, and singing along, is such fun for all older people, with or without good singing voices :)

  2. EXCELLENT PHOTOS! I enlarged and the favorite photo today goes to the panorama shot. Wow!

  3. The young ones look neat and tidy. The meal looks good and everyone seems to have had a lot of fun..

  4. Looks like another fun party. The last photo of you and your hubby is wonderful.
    Happy Sunday, enjoy your day and have a great new week!

  5. St Patrick's Day was grandly ☘️ celebrated at your residence, Diane. I enjoyed seeing all the weating of th green(s) and especially nice to see you and Bill in the final photo having such a great tinme with friends and neighbors...good on you both😀
