My birthday happens to fall on the hottest month of the year (yup, that’s how behind I am with this blog), and every year, like a child who wishes for snow on Christmas morning, I pray for a cool relief from the insufferable summer heat wave. This year, my wish came true, and I was treated to a glorious high of 19 degrees! Below is a photo of me celebrating with a jacket:
For dinner, a few close friends and I got together for dinner at Il Postino, an Italian restaurant in Unionville.
My fusili with sundried tomatoes, Unionville mushrooms and peppercorn cream sauce.
Anna’s chicken with English peas and prosciutto risotto, parsnip puree, pea tendrils and natural jus.
Nicolas’ lobster linguine with fresh east coast lobster, heirloom tomatoes, and tarragon.
Adrienne’s spaghettini with grilled chicken, sundried tomatoes, tedeschi olives, garden scallions, and spicy aglio olio.
In lieu of birthday cake, we enjoyed some of Unionville’s finest ice-cream, as well as…
…this giant raspberry macaron delight! It tasted as good as it looks!
Anna and Adrienne being adorable and PDA-y.
Back in Adrienne’s home, Nicolas discovered he has a soft spot for Wiz the chinchilla.
