Thing always end up getting silly. I borrowed Cathi's glasses and we had a few laughs with them.

We ordered a few appetizers for the table.

Hamachi with Capers, Lemon and Serrano:

We ended up ordered a couple of these….spicy and fabulous!

Beef Tartare with Salsa Verde, Radish and Quail Yolk:

Another winner!!
Duck Fat Fries:

Obviously these were good.

I split two things with Lila for dinner. Flat Iron Steak with Chimichurri and Bearnaise:

The steak was excellent but I wish it had been more chimichurri instead of the sauce which really didn't taste like chimichurri at all.

We also split the Crab Mac and Cheese.

This wasn't that good…dry and not a lot of flavor. Bummer.

Dessert wasn't a bummer. I blew out my candles on my birthday sundae and then moved onto other desserts.

S'mores Bar and Beignets:

Both of these were really excellent! More than made up for the mediocre dinner. I always seem to find that I prefer appetizers and desserts over the main entrees.

Thank you to everyone who made my birthday absolutely amazing!

Breakfast this morning was scrambled egg beaters with turkey, green onions, salsa and cheddar cheese.

I dropped the kids off at school and grabbed a skinny vanilla latte at Starbucks.

I hit the road for Los Angeles to visit my mom. We stopped for lunch at The Corner Bakery. I had the chopped salad and chili.

Tonight we are going over to my brother's house to celebrate my birthday (it never ends!) and what we call "Fake Christmas". My brother spends every other year with his wife's family so on those years, we celebrate Christmas beforehand.

I just got new blogging software so I apologize i there are any glitches in this post. Still trying to figure things out!

Are you an appetizer person or would you rather move straight to the main course?

  1. I could just make a meal over appetizers and skip the entree all together.

    What software are you using now? Let the celebration continue!
