Happy Birthday to me!

Komal and Gaurang hosted a pre-birthday dinner for me at their apartment. Guests in attendance included Mukund, Gigi, Binal, Sujata, Lilah, the husband, and of course, me. This was a great pre-birthday bash. Komal made appetizers, salad, baked ziti, and chicken lasagna. Gigi brought baklava and thumbprint cookies. Devang made his famous Banana’s Foster for dessert which originally made an appearance during our second date 7 years ago, and then disappeared until tonight. I even got presents – A pastry bag tips-set from Binal, and cute earrings from Sujata. 

To say thank you, I ate a ton of food, drank a lot of wine, and made everyone paper crowns from the Sunday’s New York Times.

Awesome and Awesome.
