My relatives and I had a lovely celebration Sunday night at Not Your Average Joe's
where the appetizer bread they serve has a delicious dip that I love. It consists of parmesan cheese, cayenne pepper and olive oil. My birthday cake was a tiramisu cake which was absolutely scrumptuous.
On my actual birthday my cousin and I went to the Petit Robert Bistro
where we had an incredible lunch. First I had a spinach and leek soup then Annie's Croque Monsieur followed by a hot mocha drink with Dark Godiva chocolate and a Crème brûlée which I shared with my cousin. So I gain a few pounds or so - it's worth it.
Tomorrow I'm returning to NYC after a half wonderful/half sad visit (my elderly relative's dementia was much worse this year than last year). I can't help wondering what it will be like next year *sigh*
