A Most Delicious Birthday Breakfast


On Sunday, my daughter, bless her heart,  treated me to a really sumptuous breakfast in my absolutely favorite restaurant, Cafe Adams.

It's a bit of a drive to get there but worth every mile. It's in a small town called Great Barrington. The owner, Adam Zieminski, is a graduate of Johnson and Wales in Rhode Island. Trust me, he does his alma mater proud.

Oh!  To read a post on it from last year go here.

Sunday was actually an early celebration of my birthday which just happens to be today! Yippee! It's so great to be alive and I'm so grateful to have made it this far.

We started out our delicious meal with a fruit plate that looked like a piece of art. (Shown in photo at the top of this post). Honestly, it looked almost too good to eat but, somehow, we managed to make every morsel disappear. It came with a strawberry mint sauce. Mmm mmm mmm

I had Eggs Benedict with a piece of salmon, smoked bacon, and asparagus.  It was a scrumptuous choice.



My daughter had a kind of blood sausage and eggs with mushrooms and small tomatoes with grilled toast.



The dessert, my portion of which came complete with a birthday candle, was a kind of cream puff shell filled with pistachio ice cream inside and chocolate sauce outside. Strawberry halves provided the little pop of red on the plate.  Rarely do I order dessert but I did on Sunday. It was quite fabulous.



That's the kind of meal that suffices for the entire day, with just a nibble for supper.

You want to know what a huge source of happiness has been for the past two and a half years of life?  The answer is writing this blog.

 Because of Writing Straight from the Heart, I have gotten to know so many wonderful people in blogland, including yourself!

It has been such a joy to share big things and little things with you.

 Each new Follower has brought so much happiness to me. Getting comments each day is thrilling, too.

Every photo I've taken and every word written have been like shots of sunlight in a dark room.

Thanks to each of you for contributing so much to my life.

A big birthday hug to from me to all of you!

WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO TO CELEBRATE YOUR BIRTHDAY?

Happy Happy Birthday!!!!!!!!!
I like how you said it was "kind of" a blood sausage and "kind of" a cream puff, LOL!
Either way, yes. It ALL looks wonderful!
I make cream puffs, but just might have to make some and put pistachio ice cream in them...
I am so happy to call you friend, and I am so happy for blogging, too, or I wouldn't have met the sweetheart that is YOU!
I pray you have many many many more birthdays and many many more friends!
I love you!
