(I meant to get these pictures BEFORE we had started eating...when they set down the food, I tore into like a Shark and a bucket of chum...I had no control.)
WHITE BEAN HUMMUS
Great northern bean and roasted garlic hummus, topped with a poblano and pepita pesto. Finished with rosemary oil and served with campfire grilled flatbread.
PRIME BONE-IN PORK CHOP
Oklahoma raised 10oz prime pork chop with sweet potato risotto and apple-fig chutney
Birthday Girl's (ME!) Dinner:
GRILLED VEGETABLE STACK
Char-grilled zucchini, yellow squash, poblano, red bell pepper and Portobello mushroom, towered atop a charred jalapeno gratin
Birthday Girl's (ME!) Sides (not pictured...they were pretty much devoured as soon as they hit the table):
SMALL SHAROLYNN SALAD
Mixed greens, roma tomatoes, red onion, pine nuts, and bleu cheese crumbles tossed in a pure maple vinaigrette
Grilled Asparagus with a balsamic glaze
Dinner was, like I said, FANTASTIC.
After dinner, Jay took me to see Black Swan. I have been wanting to see it for a while, and I LOVED it. Not a movie for everyone. Here is a little review that I liked, if you are interested NY Times, Black Swan Review.
This is what I wore (I didn't have time to wash my hair, or get ready how I would have liked too...I was having too much fun playing with my little guys...I still felt good about how I was dressed, thus feeling semi confident--I THINK I am starting to like this feeling):
NEW Express knit sweater, Gap black/gray skinny jeans, black TOMS, Target large bead necklace.
Here are my NEW sweaters:
It was a GREAT Birthday date night with my Jaybee! On the way home, I text Candice to see how things went; here is our text message conversation...
Me: On our way, how are things?
