Birthday Fun

Birthdays are for celebrating!

I celebrated my friend, Jan's birthday with a long leisurely lunch. We went to our "usual" lunch spot, Pacifica restaurant in Palm Desert.

Not only do we often go to the same restaurant, but when we go there, we ALWAYS have the same thing to eat: salad and shared calamari!

Today we chose a simple salad of mixed spring greens, gorgonzola, nuts, cranberries, and a maple vinigarette.

What would a birthday party be without gifts? I'm been saving this for Jan since last July: a ceramic baking dish from Orvieto.

Dessert? Of course! I helped Jan eat the ice cream!

Wow, that dish looks lovely. BTW have I mentioned that Chris makes the best fried calamari? See you and Brad will have to come east (and get to NY), so you can try it.

What a fun celebration! I am impressed that you got the gift last year in Italy - very smart!!

Loks like a great day! Jan is lucky to have a wonderful friend like you.
