Anyway, my husband and I don't really do gifts anymore since we both buy ourselves what we want and need when we want and need it. LOL But, we do go out for a nice meal together. This year we brought the kids along and had a great time.
Oddly enough, I chose the restaurant I've chosen for the past three years, Saigon Cafe in Jersey City, New Jersey. (website) Vietnamese food made by a very friendly Vietnamese family served in a comfy little hole in the wall. I think I may have ordered the same dish the past three years in a row too. :)
Here are some rather crappy pictures. The lighting in the restaurant had a blue cast to it and all I had was my son's cheapo point and shoot. I don't know how all those great food bloggers whip out that big DSLR at a restaurant - guess I'm too self conscious.
The girls (we're sitting on a church pew!):
My fav - prawn chip pork with lettuce wraps (there are cukes and carrots in there too):
Of course, dessert came and it's one we just LOVE. I totally forgot to take a picture until...
And my husband got off cheap. Dinner for four, soup to nuts with a few alcoholic beverages (3 mojitos) and he shells out less than $100! Hmmm...maybe I should rethink that whole no gift thing.
Thanks for a great birthday meal, my gorgeous and sophisticated husband. Love ya (someone has to)!
