Even though it’s a few days before my birthday, I’ve begun to celebrate. Today my friend took me to my favorite coffee shop for my favorite drink–Kaldi chai. It’s their special recipe of milk tea with spices and lots of ginger. So yummy. She said it was a Friendship Day / Birthday tea party.
Our favorite restaurant is Lumee Street Café. This evening Keith and I went for an early birthday dinner.
Here’s the description of what we ordered (from the downloaded menu still on my phone). The pictures were taken after we had dug in and removed a lot of the yummy stuff.
On the lower left:
Couscous Salad with Grilled Chicken Breast – Spiced couscous, peas, long beans, snow peas, raisins, roast peppers, sun-dried tomato, pomegranate, caramelized onion, grilled chicken breast slices
On the lower right:
Cauliflower Koshari – Steamed cauliflower rice, fire-roasted cauliflower, green lentils, chickpeas, gluten-free spaghetti, onion hamsa, flax seeds, sunflower seeds, spicy daqoos sauce (V, GF)
Then dessert of Pralines and Cream from Baskin-Robbins.
In between I read chapters in the novel Me Before You by Jojo Moyes. Now I’m relaxing and writing this post on my phone before I turn in early to read more in my book.

I know some who celebrate their “half birthday,” so celebrating early is certainly acceptable! Your meal sounds wonderful. I hope all your birthday wishes come true!
Thank you so much, Glenda! So glad to see you back today. Now I’m heading over to http://evolvingenglishteacher.blogspot.com/ to read about your trip!
Happy early birthday, Denise! I cannot tell you how very much I enjoy seeing your pictures and learning about your culture where you are. I will have a little ice cream and tea and give cheers to you as I celebrate you stateside!
Ah, thank you, Kim. I’m hoping you enjoy the ice cream and tea with me from a distance!
