Happy Birthday Husband!

Yesterday was my husband's birthday. Since it was on a Monday, we celebrated all weekend. On Friday, we headed out on a bike ride to Wash Park to play some tennis and have a wine and cheese picnic.

After reading Jenna (from Eat, Live, Run) rave about Murphy Goode's wine, I picked up a bottle of their Sauvignon Blanc. Our cheese selection included Smoked Gouda, Fresh Mozzarella and an Apple Cider English Cheddar. All three were delish and went really well with the Blanc.

On Saturday, I surprised the Hubs by taking him to dinner at a new restaurant called the Squeaky Bean. We had an awesome meal there! This area is not known for having any ambiance, but we had a great time sitting on their patio enjoying our food and drinks.

We ordered:

crispy medjool dates- cambazola, prosciutto
tuna tonnato - sliced ahi, spicy cucumber and fennel piccalilli, tonnato sauce
beets - roasted beets, hazelnuts, pecorino
shrimp BLTA - shrimp, tomato, boar bacon, green, avocado, roasted pepper aioli
The only dish I wasn't crazy about was the tuna tonnato. To drink we had the squeaky spritz, which is a mix of Prosecco, Aperol and Sparkling Water. According to google, Aperol is an Italian aperitif. This drink was muy delicioso! They have happy hour Tues-Sat so we will be back very soon.

Happy Birthday Hubs!!! I love you very much and hope you had a great birthday weekend!
