My Birthday

This year, I had two birthday events. On Wednesday we had a lunch get together at my workplace. The other was on Saturday with some friends.

My co-workers organized a buffet lunch.

The food was ordered from Lin’s China Jade in Beaverton.

Here is everyone.

On Saturday, we had dinner with friends at Piazza Italia.

Waiting for our table.

Started the evening with Prosecco 🙂

Linguine with Clams

Papardelle with Wild Boar Sauce

Marcel and Chad

Profiteroles – delicious!

Panna Cotta – The best I have ever had!


We liked Piazza Italia but the highlight of the evening was the dessert menu. After dinner, we went on a pub crawl starting from Underdog Sports Bar, to Wimpy’s then finally at North 45.

I enjoyed my birthday celebrations this year. One of the best ones in recent memory!

    How fun! Happy birthday! I LOVE panna cotta and have never seen it served in chunks like that, only in goblets or ramekins similar to creme brulee.
