Dolores Loves Garnets & Rubies

And that's a (birthday) wrap

The girls gave me gift certificates to Al Corso for my birthday so that we could all go out for dinner together. I really like how that worked out so well for them, too! It's the second time I've been there; it won't be the last. Al Corso is in the middle of nowhere, but people seem to come from everywhere -- man, they were busy!

We started the evening sharing appetizers -- Beet-Salmon over Buckwheat Waffle with Creme Fraiche, and Goat Cheese-Spinach-Artichoke Dip. Please, sir, may I have some more??? Everyone had something different for dinner -- Grilled Sirloin & Shrimp with au gratin potatoes, Tenderloin Stroganoff, Mustard-crusted Salmon over pasta, Shrimp Provencal over pasta, Pork Tenderloin Roulade with mashed potatoes, and Pecan-crusted Halibut with haystack onion rings and baby reds. Some of us took leftovers (along with our donut for the morning) and saved room for dessert: chocolate peppermint creme brulee, malted milk ball creme brulee, and chocolate cake.

Guess what I had!!



Oh boy that all sounds so delicious! I bet you had chocolate cake!


OMG it all sounds marvelous! Great combos of food and veggies. How could you pick one! I would have had the pecan crusted halibut! Did you? What a great way to celebrate your special day.


Yum, yum. Like Carole I guess chocolate cake for you.

Oh, my! However did you choose? Whatever it was, I'm sure it was marvelous.


I love birthday presents like this that you can enjoy with the people you love most. :)


Oh malted milk balls + creme brulee = heaven to me!


What an excellent birthday gift! The menu choices all sound delicious!

Sounds like a perfect birthday dinner. That's how my girls and I like to dine- sharing the food. We can never decide on just one thing. Nothing like daughters to make life better!
Happy Birthday.


An excellent birthday dinner whatever you chose!
