According to my mister, last week was dedicated to my birthday. We celebrated with food. So, I was off my pseudo diet and I haven’t been to the gym since last Monday. I planned to go last Wednesday. I usually go during my lunch break, but a Claim Jumper was about to open near work and the restaurant was offering it’s potential customers a free lunch. So, a couple of co-workers and I went for our birthdays. There are 3 of us who celebrate on the same day. I completely forgot to take pics of the large portions of food.
Also, that day, there was a farmer’s market nearby. I was dying to go because I wanted to find the elusive “rainbow bread” by Homeboy Bakery. I got to the booth fairly early and I managed to get the last loaf. It’s essentially white bread with food coloring. Kids love it. I heart all the colors. What’s weird is that it looks like it should taste sweet, but it doesn’t. This evening, I made grilled cheese sandwiches.
Apparently, this week is a popular birthday week. I have a couple of friends who are also celebrating on the 14th, the 17th and 4 of us on the 16th. One of Mr. C’s friends celebrated his birthday at Chuck E. Cheese’s. I was the parent who took him. I think I might have preferred to be the one to stay at home with the younger 2, but Mr. C. wanted me to go with him. I’m not too fond of this place, I’m way too old to appreciate it. Mr. C and his friends especially the birthday boy loved it.
Friday night we celebrated with my extended family at a Chinese restaurant. We have to eat noodles because it represents long life. So, it’s been a non-stop eating adventure. And I pigged out. No diet here. I think I may have gained all the weight I lost.
Then last night, my mister treated me to the Chart House. We decided to go here because we are Landry’s Select Club Members. The Chart House really did it up. Here’s the menu. I didn’t even notice until my mister pointed it out. I heart it!
I totally forgot to take a pic of my soup trio and my shrimp trio plate. But here was our dessert. Godiva Molten Lava Cake with Ice Cream and drizzled with hot fudge and toffee sprinkles. It was ridiculous. Can you believe we didn’t even finish it? We had eaten so much already. Plus, I ordered a decaf cappuccino to go with the dessert. We are piggies. I heart the mister so.
I promise I’ll get back to my regular posts soon. I just got thrown off with the birthday bonanzas.
How do you like to celebrate birthdays?
