Feliz cumpleaños a mí !


For my b-day my husband, son, brother and I went to Julie's Cuban Restaurant; a really vibrant place.

It was my second time there. Food was as interesting and great-tasting as the first time. We forgot the camera but desert was a margarita cheese cake (that tasted just like condensed milk) topped with a sparkler.

I'm inspired learn about Cuban food. www.juliescuban.com/index.

This reminds me that when I lived back east, every time I went to Toronto I ended up eating my way from one end of town to the other. I'm glad you had such a happy birthday.

Cuban food sounds like a winner to me. How was the beer?

1) I wish I had an older brother who knows a cool gift when he sees it (others, see H's previous poster-post);

2) Julie would be smug & happy to know the name of the resto if only she could really understand...for whatever reason, it pleases me no end;

3) Cuban food leads to dancing...so you've nearly a year to ready yourself for NYC Gatsby-do (not letting this idea go)

4) Off to hike the Appalachian Trail.

OK, no. But off to listen to hilarious Sat. a.m. NPR show which will surely alleviate various upsets by mocking others. I can't help it.

Again, felicitations my dear & hope you're all fluffed,floofed, & armed with books & mags & music for riding the bus.

PS: I have to type it--the verification jumble 'gypsyeti' -- hey, close enough to mean something to me.

sounds like you had a great birthday between the picture and the food. love cuban food. used to get it all the time in ybor city in Tampa. the pie sounds a bit scetchy though. were you able to blow the sparkler out?

Happy Belated Birthday! That cheesecake sounds divine - if you'd taken a shot of it, I'd be piling on the pounds! Thanks for forgetting the camera.

Happy birthday, and let us know what you learn about Cuban food. My few experiences with that cuisine were so memorable. Some plantain chips with a garlic sauce that sent me over the edge. Oh, yum.

I hope you enjoyed your celebration.

Happy Birthday! Sounds like a nice time in just the right amount of company! I love "the few" to celebrate my birthday too....enjoy!

Sounds like a wondeful time! Margarita cheesecake? That sounds delicious too. (What? They couldn't find enough candles? I suppose wax and cheesecake don't really go together, do they?)

Happy Belated Birthday, Hazel! This restaurant looks so inviting. I love Cuban food and was just yesterday looking at a photo I took of a Cuban sandwich while on vacation last year. I was looking and wishing and drooling instead of eating. (Diet) All the best to you in your new year!
