Thanks for the birthday wishes everyone! I had a great day. This will be posting on Saturday – as we are on our way out of town! Heading over to Vermont to spend some time this weekend in Bennington riding around with our bikes. I get to use my nifty new front handlebar bag to hold stuff in. No more back pack, yay! It’s going to be great for my triathlon, too!
Anyway, I didn’t end up eating lunch yesterday because I was so full from that big breakfast. I almost never skip meals, but the intuitive me just wasn’t hungry (and I actually listened).
Did a little shopping and stopped at Bistro Tallulah for dinner
One thing I love about this place is that they serve half portions. So you can get a small delicious portion for less money, and you don’t have to take home leftovers. It’s perfect. I don’t necessarily want to get a regular size meal and take some home, especially if it is rich. Usually I don’t want to eat that twice, you know?
John and I shared some clam and artichoke soup with a basil drizzle:
John ordered a fish meal (escalar?) that was on top of baby potatoes and asparagus, topped with a mango lime chutney:
I broke my rule of no local meat and had hangar steak (like flank) with a sundried tomato/gorgonzola topping. Ultra yum.
It was about 3 ounces of meat. Perfect – what would be a normal home-sized portion. That’s what I love about this place. I also had to save room for cake and frozen yogurt that John made!
We didn’t want to set the house on fire with 41 candles (!!!), so John spelled out a 4 and 1 on it LOL!
My nieces help me blow out candles 😀
I’ll post pics of our bike riding on Sunday! Gotta bike off that cake!
