Since I just had my birthday, some of you probably are curious about what I ATE for my birthday dinner. I thought it would be appropriate to...."share the joy of the season". I chose my favorite local French bistro as I often do in the past. Here's what we ordered. I had Duck Two Ways- braised duck breast and fried duck leg along with beets, snow peas, mashed potatoes and Brussels sprout. SUPER yum!
Dr. John's favorite--8 oz. Beef Tenderloin, Stephanie had half of that.
David's Creamy Pasta with Scallop
Then the Flourless Chocolate Sin cake
I had my old favorite-Creme Brulee!
I'm also sharing the cards that I made over the weekend. A friend of Stephanie ordered 20 Christmas cards from me. These are the two designs I came up with.
One funny thing happened during our dinner out...
I was bothered by the loud noise at the restaurant. Right after hearing my complaint, Dr. John popped the case out with the ear plugs ! The way he opened it ( I had a little flashback of the Edward/Richard Gere opening the jewelry case for Julia Roberts in "Pretty Woman" ...)as if the case contains BIG DIAMONDS!! Then he said: "Happy Birthday!"(with a sneaky grin)....I laughed so hard while I was staring at the ear plugs! That, to me...is priceless!
