Oprah Winfrey Keeps It Simple And Celebrates Her 64th Birthday With Bread, Rosé, And Black Eyed Field Peas

She’s got an incredible sense of humor, she’s loyal to people in her life, she is an advocate of literacy, she’s immensely talented, and she is generous with both her money and time, donating millions of dollars to numerous organization. And the business woman keeps it simple when it comes to marking milestones.
Bread and peas dinner
The icon didn’t want to throw a big fancy party. Instead, she decided to simply enjoy the afternoon with some of her favorite things and foods. To give an insight into her celebration, the TV presenter posted an Instagram snap of what she had eaten during her birthday party.
Who knew that cornbread and peas were the key to her heart? She captured the pic:
This is me on my birthday having cornbread and black eyed field peas and rosé. Thank you John Travolta for the glass and I have to say, yes I did. I had two pieces.
Partying with co-workers
But this is not the only celebration she held. Over the weekend, the OWN mogul had some quality time with her staff, ambassadors, and a giant cake. It seems she shied away from her Weight Watchers plan, but come on, it’s her birthday!
Thank you OWN staff, OWNERs & OWN Ambassadors for a lot of pre-birthday happiness!
