I used to love my birthday... but not so much anymore. It just means getting older and time passing (and yes, I realize I am not that old! lol). I've actually been pretty depressed today for a variety of reasons though, so I don't feel like doing a cheery post and I'm not going to! But I did go to Wild Ginger tonight for dinner... just me and my Mom. And the funny thing is, this is the first time my Mom has ever been. She's not a vegetarian, but I figured it wouldn't kill her to sit through one "meat free" meal with me! lol Here's what we got....
Her dinner came with miso soup, so that came out first. My Mom really liked it and I tried a bite and thought it was good too.
We both got the spring rolls. They are truly a winner! :)
We got the tofu skin wraps to share, because we both wanted to try them. Shockingly, this was the very first thing I didn't like at Wild Ginger! And neither did my Mom. They just had a funny taste to them. My Mom said they must have put something fermented in them... but I don't know. They looked like they would be tasty though!
Luckily we loved our other appetizers though... Mom got the baked eggplant.
I got the steamed veggie dumplings, a usual favorite.
Mom got the moo-shu vegetables with wrappers for her entree.
I got my usual favorite, pineapple fried rice!
I didn't have room for dessert, so I got some to take home. I've heard great things about Wild Ginger's peanut butter bomb, and it lives up to the hype. In fact, I'm nibbling on it now!
I took some pictures of Peanut today... what can I say? He's a beauty! :)
And a note about the up-coming Wild Ginger meet-up... after going there for dinner tonight I'm almost leaning towards trying to do a lunch there instead. They aren't as busy, so I think they'll be able to cater to a larger group of people then... AND it will be easier to find them in daylight hours! lol I will e-mail the attendees detailed instructions on how to get there, but I think we're looking at a Wild Ginger lunch instead... I'd do a weekend of course so everyone could make it! And it will be sometime in March. That's all for now!
