A gastronomic day

So many birthdays! The penultimate time Samos and I went out to lunch was to celebrate his birthday, which, I am embarrassed to admit, I had totally forgotten all about. Fortunately, he reminded me. We went to the elegant Café Flora, my new favorite restaurant. The food was delightful, and he said it was one of the best meals he ever had. This time, we were more “down home,” and went to our favorite Vietnamese vegan restaurant. There is something so comforting about slurping up noodles from a bowl of Phở. I guess it is similar to the chicken soup effect - warm, wet, and slightly slimy. What is better? Not much.

That's it, I am going to have to come over for dinner and damn the allergies....I can cope with an upset gut for a day or so.

Thanks Joanna! That was indeed two super delicious lunches... I usually hate photos of myself, but for some reason I like this action shot of me! Thanks Laura! :-)
