My B-Day Dinner #1

Thanks for all the birthday wishes lovelies!

Today has been a great day so far. I had a good day at work ...
This morning I snacked on a pear and a piece of old cheddar cheese.

Lunch was Taco Del Mar:



A Baja Bowl (rice, beans, pico, ground beef, cheese, sour cream, guacamole, and extra cilantro).

My hubby took me out for my b-day dinner tonight. We went to a new restaurant in town called "The Fainting Goat."

I got the CRAZIEST Caesar ever! It was called "Smokey BBQ" and it was bacon and jalapeƱo infused vodka, with Clamato juice, and garnished with cheddar and beef jerky!!!!!!



As strange as it sounds, it was actually really good!

The hubby and I shared 2 appetizers. The first was a Mezze platter with Nan bread and whole wheat pita, and 3 dips (baba ghanoush, cheese goreme, and m'hammara):



I ate about 1/3 of this.

We also got the "Samosas" that were made with wild mushrooms, squash and shredded beats, and dipped in honey chili sauce and mint chutney.



I had one.

My entree was a duck breast with orange infused beets, Byzantine rice pilaf, and fried leek:



It was really good - besides the thick layer of fat that was on the duck breast (I cut it off).

The hubby and I passed on dessert and went to Blockbuster to rent "17 Again" - LOL.

I am a lucky girl ... this is just the first of 3 b-day dinners!! Tomorrow my dad is taking me to Red Lobster, and on Saturday I am going out with friends to "The Crushed Grape."

Off to snuggle up on the couch ... see you in the morning!
