Today has been a lovely, if low key, birthday. I started out my day by baking up a storm. Hey, birthdays are all about doing what you want to do! After baking, I put in some time on the elliptical and then came home and got ready for our wonderful dinner out.
I also put in some major kitten cuddle time. No birthday is complete without some kitten love!
And to answer your question: yes, she always has the crazy eyes.
For dinner, we went to a new to us place called Luc. We got there nice and early so there was no wait. Perfection.
We started off with some bread and butter which was perfect, french style bread.
And of course, some perfectly legal wine! I got a Rose and Steve got a White. We tried each others but ended up being very happy with our choices.
For starters, we shared an incredible cheese plate. I wish I could remember the names of any of the cheeses (note to self, write these things down) but they were all very good. The one on the far end was the overall favorite but Steve loved the goat cheese. I’m not a huge fan of goat cheese, but I helped polish off the other three. It also included and incredible jam, hazelnuts, and raisins as well as bread to eat the cheeses with.
Steve decided to be an anti-vegetarian for the day and order the burger, since it was a special occasion and all. The burger had the cheese cooked inside of it and he was incredibly pleased with his meal.
I decided to add a small salad to finish off my meal. It was topped with shaved cheese and hazelnuts and was delicious and simple.
We had an absolutely lovely time and even though it wasn’t anything crazy, I had a very nice birthday.
I have a feeling that 21 is going to be a great year 🙂
