hey there. sorry for my silence the last couple of days. i have been feeling a little off, and it has just been feeling stressful with some social media and such. just like i’ve seen happening with other bloggers out there, i think i’m gonna switch down the posting frequency in here. at least for now.
oh well! as you know, it was my birthday on saturday. but my celebration started already on friday night:
after work, i got ready and walked the couple of blocks from me to the location of my friday night plans.
the sun was just setting and the mission looked fantastic. this time of year is really great birthday weather always.
this was where i was going! al’s place, which is a veggie-centric (but not vegetarian) restaurant with a michelin star. i had booked weeks and weeks in advance and had gotten a table! yay.
my friend and old roommate ivana was my dinner companion for the night which was nice, since i’ve barely seen her since i moved back from new york.
al’s was so cute, with plants and lights along the walls, and the servers dressed in differently patterned clothes.
this was me! hello hi.
in an all-black dress and platform shoes which you can’t see.
we ordered rosé bubbles of course, because celebrations!
and then food. they offer small plates to order several of, and sharing them. we got a few, starting with this one.
trout, potato, and turnip something. very cute. our second and third plates (which i didn’t shoot pics of) were a campanelle with asparagus pesto and a sunchoke curry with black-lime cod and citrus jewels. *food tv show voice*. i realize this might sound like gibberish and it kind of did to us too, but it was lovely however.
we ended with sharing a caramel-filled brownie with peanut icecream. yum yum yum. and then we went into the friday night and drank what felt like 10 glasses of wine (don’t worry though, it wasn’t). great start to my birthday celebrations!
jag fyllde år i lördags som ni kanske vet? hehe klart ni gör. började firet på fredagkväll på flotta michelinrestaurangen al’s place med ivana! vi drack rosébubbel och delade på fyra spännande knäppa rätter. var himlans gott! och sen gick vi ut i rödvinsnatten. så bra start på födelsehelgen!
och sorry förresten för några dagars tystnad. kommer dra ner lite på bloggandet framöver, kanske tre-ish gånger i veckan istället för sex. ok? <3
