Happy Birthday my Birdman.....

UPDATE: Want to wish someone else a very happy birthday, too. Happy Birthday Bruce!!! You're a very special guy, hope you have a great day out there in Or eh gone. (The correct way to say it if you're from Jersey, which, by the way, you are.) Love ya!

Yesterday was Birdman's birthday. 
Why didn't I do a post yesterday, you ask??
I was looking for a photo, specifically in his baby book....which I couldn't find.
So I waited til we went out to dinner to get some photo material.
Coming home with a full tummy, late, I didn't post.

This morning....I walked into the living room  and there on the window seat was his baby book...along with my baby book and our son's baby book. They were not on the shelf where they should be....where I looked yesterday....but there they were...in full sight.
sigh....
I'm getting old.

Anyway, my Birdman is the joy of my life. My best bud. I hope he had a great birthday....ahem....
yesterday.

So here was our dinner experience.

We went to On The Marsh in Kennebunkport, Maine.

We got there a little early, we went to the bar for a drink. We both had a Sangria.

Our table for dinner was at a window. It's called On The Marsh because they are on a marsh.
Our window view of their garden....

We each had a glass of wine and ordered their mussels. I forgot to take a photo of the mussels, so Birdman showed me some other ones.

Impressive.

Pan-Roasted Rope Cultured Mussels Oven-Roasted Tomatoes, Roasted Garlic, White Wine, Cream, Fresh Herbs $9

Hubby had steak...


Grilled Center-Cut Beef Tenderloin Prime Rib Hash, Red Carrots, Truffle Demi $34

I had lobster.....





Fresh Maine Lobster "Succotash"
Polenta Cake, Sweet Corn, English Peas, Carrots, Onion, Saffron-Fennel Pollen Cream
$37


Then for dessert I had a blueberry swirl icecream with blueberry cake.(not on the online menu...)

Birdman had...
Dutch Apple Bolen
Roasted Apple, Caramel, Cinnamon, Puff Pastry, House-Made Vanilla Bean Ice Cream
$8

Everything was wonderful and I hope Birdman had lots of fun.

I think he did.

He's always fun to do stuff with.

Love ya.

Perhaps not quite as spectacular as your cooking but I'm certain it was a delicious day in every way.

Yeah, it was expensive, but I bought a $75 voucher for $35 at the restaurant on Living Social, we we actually saved $40 on the deal.

No photos of the dessert? You obviously are drawn to the high class restaurants..I tend to find cheap eats...my budget couldn't take On the Marsh!
The steak looked tempting; mussels weren't bad either!

It was quite a fare. It was quite a night. Don't get the wrong idea. On special occasions, like this, we do splurge, but for the most part Elenka is a fabulous cook. Why venture far from her table. And this was a restaurant that she has had her eye on for sometime now. The pictures were not deceiving... a delicious repast and well worth the trip to Kennebunkport. Thanks, pal.
