My 34th birthday : 16/02/2013
I celebrated my 34th quietly with a passage at the beautician for a relaxing massage. I also bought myself some beauty products and creams to maintain my youthful appearance. I then had a professional makeup artist give me the star treatment for the day.
Shrek gave me a waffle maker (that I went and bought as he was busy working) and we made good use of it immediately with delicious Vietnamese coconut and pandan flavoured waffles (which in my opinion are the best kind of waffles). On a regalés !
We then went to a restaurant with the party of : Shrek, myself, Petit Suisse and Lil Miss N. I picked a restaurant that was unpretentious : Le Grand Cafe. Shrek chose the most unpalateble dish for his main : filet de dorade which did not taste at all fresh as if it has been cooked and recooked several times...all in all it was not too bad except for the big faux pas re Shrek's main course.
We had terrine de canard, foie gras, rillettes de saumon and cocktail de crevettes comme entrées.
The four plats were noix de Sainte Jaques grillés, tartare de boeuf, suprême de poulet and the sorry filet de dorade.
Glaces, crème brulée and yin et yang (fondant au chocolat et glaçe de vanille) completed our meal.
It was the first time we went out to dinner just the four of us as the two little munchkins were with my inlaws.
I enjoyed my birthday celebration. Merci mes coeurs d'amour
