Birthday lunch!

You think I can incorporate "Birthday" into the title of every post until my actual birthday? I'm willing to bet I can :) and probably will.  I don't usual start so early but I blame Starbucks for sending me a free birthday drink postcard on January 31st for my premature celebrating.  Also, I will be on vacay for my birthday so must celebrate a bit with family before I leave, so that brings me to birthday lunch with Mom and Nanny (hey ladies :) We went to Aurora Provisions where I got a KILLER salad.

I had a tough time deciding on what to get because everything looked so good.  Aurora has a lot of their options ready on the counter to be selected and plated for you. This salad was in a giant bowl looking so fresh and flavorful. Mixed greens, carrots, cashews and sauteed mushrooms with a curry vinaigrette.

Eeentsy weensty tiny little teacup contained the dressing (maybe one of the best ever????)

 Glossy cashew

Mom and Nanny both got the grilled vegetable sandwich with herbed goat cheese (I've had many times, it's amazing)

Later, back at mi case we enjoyed some treats, also from Aurora.  This is my rum butter truffle. The first of many "birthday cakes" :)
