Fabulous Fifty!!!

Today was a special day--Some friends and I celebrated another friend's 50th birthday! We met at The Mission Road and Antique Mall and tucked in the back corner there you will find a delightful gem. The Bloomsbury Bistro.
Here we are: L-R: Myself, THE BIRTHDAY GIRL--
Ann, Alice and Kristen.
The bistro has some of THE most delicious
food I have tasted in a long time.
Above, Alice had the Bistro Special--
Red Lentil and Vegetable Soup
and half of the Seafood Salad Sandwich.
Kristen had the Welsh Rarebit with Tomatoes
and Turkey and a Garden Salad.
I had the Bistro Special--Half of the Chicken
and Ham Roulade and the Garden Salad.
The birthday girl had the Bistro Special too-
She chose the Cucumber and Dill Soup and
half of Cari's Got A Beef Sandwich.
Oh so yummy I must tell you!!!!
Time for presents--"What does one get someone
when they turn fifty? I gave Ann a really cute card
and a "gift certificate" for our lunch.
Opening the card for the next goodie.
Little teeny tiny cakes ! She was happy with
this present--I just clicked too fast. :)
Now let me tell you these little cakes are
also most delish and they come in all sorts
of flavors. Yum!
"Would anyone care for dessert?" Well, of
course we would!!!! Alice had the Mango
Mousse with Lime Curd Fruit Tart.
Kristen had the Vanilla Bean Creme Brulee
with a Cookie.
Ann and I split the Toasted Carrot Cake.
This is served warm and let me tell you this
is not your ordinary carrot cake! See that
creme filling, the carmel sauce, and those
nuts??? Goodness gracious !!!!!!!
Needless to say-we had a most delightful birthday lunch and the best part is that
Ann didn't know that Alice and Kristen were
coming!!!! I was a bit sneaky on this. YEA!
I love it when a plan turns out!
Have a wonderful weekend--we have a family
picnic tomorrow and then Father's Day on
Sunday so I won't be posting for a bit.
Be back soon.
Happy Father's Day to all!
~Keep on Dreaming~
