happy birthday Byron

For Byron's Birthday I took him to Panciuto, a restaurant that he has been dreaming about for quite some time. It did not disappoint. The food was spectacular. Luckily for us, Alice cooperated and fell fast asleep so we were able to take our time and really enjoy the exquisite, local, farm-to-table food that was prepared for us. 

This is what we ate. During the week, small plates are offered on the menu. We chose four dishes and shared everything. The flavor combinations were perfection. We dined on a cheese plate, salad with jalapeño vinaigrette, goat cheese tortellini with fried green tomatoes, pork loin with corn fritters and heirloom tomatoes. All of the food was locally grown and raised. 

They served the tiniest glasses of wine as a pre-dinner aperitif. We were also given complementary glasses of prosecco since it was Byron's birthday. Last, but not least, we had blackberry-blueberry cobbler for dessert (in the first picture).

I love you Byron! I hope you had a fantastic birthday!

As a late night treat for Byron's birthday, Alice awoke and stood up in her crib. She also crawled all over the floor while we lowered the mattress. She's getting older too. 


  1. Big girl! Standing and crawling! Squee! And yay foods!
