My Birthday Feast

"Where is the Fabulous Foodie going tonight?"

"Hope you do something indulgent!"

These are just some of the phrases I heard regarding my birthday plans yesterday; everyone assumed I would be going somewhere fancypants. Now don't get me wrong, I love a nice petit filet and tarte tatin as much as the next guy, but do you want to know what I actually did? I spent some time with good friends, good wine and…wait for it…waittttt for itttttt….DOMINOS.

Yes. I ordered Dominos for my birthday dinner and had a bottle of Sangiovese with it. Just when you thought I couldn't get any more awesome. I believe this was originally Hal's idea, and then I just invited myself and made it for my birthday. Selfish? I like to think of it as efficient. If you're going to do something bad, why not do it with moral support from friends? Alexis joined the party as well – we shared a couple of pies and some Cheesy Bread. Mmm the Cheesy Bread. I will have to work out for maybe 7 hours tonight, but it was worth it. And for dessert? Girl Scout cookies.

So in my head, I did do something indulgent and fabulous for my birthday – just maybe slightly different than what you'd expect. I like to keep people on their toes, you know?  

So thanks to Hal and Alexis for the laughs and the enabling – 17 years of friendship going strong!
