Belated Birthday Dinner at Home

Mom generously sent me a check so Neilson and I could go out for a birthday dinner, but it has been so hectic we just went out this Saturday. We decided to go to Home, one of my favorite restaurants, which is on Cornelia Street. (This was the site of the Mary memorial dinner with Vincent and my post-graduation lunch). It was a great choice--the meal was delicious and it was a perfect night to sit in the garden.

Our dinner:

Appetizers--clam chowder for Neilson, chopped salad for me. (That was one of the best salads I have ever had--the black eyed peas made it.)

Entrees--Steak for me (with garlicky greens and smashed potatoes) and arctic char for Neilson.

Dessert: Bread pudding with chocolate and bananas for Neilson and apple cranberry pie with vanilla ice cream for me.

We acted like tourists and asked the waiter to take a picture of us. Also pictured--our Peak Organic beer--Brown Ale for Neilson and Amber Ale for me.
Afterward, we went home and watched the Harper's Island finale. Neilson had correctly guessed the killer.

A great night. Thanks Mom!

Glad you had fun, Kate, and the food looks wonderful. Sounds like I should send another check to cover all this.
