Happy Birthday to Me!!July 16, 2009 at 12:10 am | Posted in Uncategorized | 5 Comments
What a fab birthday I had despite it being on a Monday and having to work (aka open returned mail for 8 hours)!
I have to say..the big highlights were spending it with James, and the food.
There’s a hole in the wall Mediterranean place near where we live that I LOOOOVE! We went there for James’ bday and now it was my turn. Mmmm falafel wrap…
The only thing I was bummed about was that this one had no hummus on it!! Good thing I had my own to smear all over it. I love falafel!
Weird fact: James is allergic to falafel but not to chick peas or hummus. Why?? Who knows. More falafel for me!
I arrived home to a lovely clean apartment and full of decorations!! I was sad that James had to work late but this (almost) totally made up for it!! I definitely had a huge smile on my face.
Then there was more take out to be had in the form of SUSHI!!! I heart sushi.
I started off with some Happy Birthday miso soup (consumed while waiting for James to come home so I wouldn’t start eating my hand)
Then there was a true feast!! Summer rolls (for me) spring rolls (for James)….
Spider Maki and Shrimp Maki
Yummm!! And I was soo full after that. But not too full for birthday cake!!
This would be a chocolate vita brownie (using the mix) with TJ’s mini peanut butter cups mixed in and slow churned Edy’s Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream and Edy’s Slow Churned Vanilla Bean ice cream.
Um. Delicious. Obviously.
And with a full and happy belly, I went to bed. Being 23 isn’t so bad after all 🙂
Thanks James for making it a super awesome Bday!!
