Yesterday was Darrell's 49th birthday - you know what that means (next year it'll be a BASH!). We spent the day just relaxing, even took a nap in the afternoon while Anthony took his. Then John and Deanna came over to stay with Anthony while Darrell and I went out to dinner to celebrate. We went to Tommy Bahamas restaurant, which was delicious! We started with drinks. I, of course, had my usual Mojito, while Darrell had a Mai-Tai. Then we shared a coconut shrimp appetizer and I had a cup of their splendidly creamy crab bisque. For the main course, Darrell enjoyed a filet mignon with a port-wine semi-glace topped with blue cheese and arugala, while I had a yummy jerk-seasoned pork tenderloin. I think it was the best pork tenderloin I've ever had! We both had garlic smashed potatoes, which were good, but I still think mine rival them! Since it was Darrell's birthday, they gave us a dessert on the house, and he chose the jamaican brownie, which was served warm with ice cream, whipped cream, toasted coconut, hot fudge and caramel sauces over it. If you think that sounds terribly rich and decadent - it was! I actually had to stop eating it after just a few bites, it was so over the top! (For those of you who really know me, you know how significant that is.) Anyway, we had a great time, and came home to a peacefully sleeping Anthony, who made sure he waited to wake up until mommy was in the final stages of drifting off to dreamland!
