I am happy to report that Mike got over his disappointment over the duplicate shopping trip for a birthday present and decided to congratulate himself for knowing exactly what I would want for myself. We celebrated my birthday by going out for a fancy dinner at a restaurant right here in Jericho, Vermont.
Mike ordered a beef filet after an appetizer of prosciutto wrapped asparagus with blue cheese. I ordered a duck breast in pastry that was served with mashed parsnips and broccolini. Our waiter suggested a Plungerhead zinfandel that worked beautifully with both meals. The meal was exquisite.
I don’t feel a day older either.
