Birthday Dinner

Well, you must return to the blog later for the pictures of this fantastic meal! They are on my phone so I'll upload Sunday along with all of my Seattle pictures. But, this meal is not to be missed. Last night, Amy and Rachel prepared Roasted Vegetables en croute with a homemade tomato basil sauce and salad of Arugula, basil, carrots with a balsamic vinaigrette. The main course had oven-roasted eggplant, onion, yellow squash, zucchini squash, and fontina cheese in a Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry crust brushed with egg. It was baked to a golden brown, sliced and served on the tomato basil sauce. Yummy! And it was beautifully plated. The aroma while cooking was delightful.

The afternoon was spent at the Seattle Art Museum. I really liked the Hopper exhibit and particularly, a sculpture of an open Kimono-like huge metal flowing coat bigger than my living room in diameter, made of military dog-tags created by Do-Ho Suh, and titled Some/One. Another photo worthy of a peek. I wish I had someone standing by it for perspective.

A quick walk over to the sound for another look and a soda, hummus and pita at nearby pub. We took the bus to town which was interesting as always.

The wonderful dinner was followed by our games of speed Scrabble, I continue to be the champ!

Today, our first sunny day this week and a nice change from SNOW yesterday, I worked on my website while Amy was at school and work. When she got home, we walked to Miro, again, for an apple basil panini. Such creatures of habit! Today we had a pot of pomegranate white tea.

Tonight- Senor Moose, the gastronomic adventure continues.
