Like I said in my last post, yesterday was my dad’s birthday!! It was a great day and I think he really enjoyed our dinner out together!
He started the day with his weekly “brothers” tennis game and then came home to nice breakfast made by muah!

Dad’s Breakfast Burrito
-1/4 cup crumbled turkey bacon
-1/4 cup part skim mozzarella cheese
-1 laughing cow swiss cheese wedge
-1/2 avocado, chopped
-1/4 cup salsa
-1 whole wheat tortilla (the ones at Wegmans are DEEEElicious!)
Wisk the two eggs together with some salt and pepper. Heat a pan to medium heat and spray with cooking spray. Add eggs. Once they set a little bit, add the bacon and mozzarella cheese and scramble everything together. Once eggs are cooked through, remove from heat and set aside. Meanwhile, spread the tortilla with laughing cow, top with the egg mixture, then the avocado. Sprinkle a bit more salt over the avocado and either top with salsa or serve it on the side!
After breakfast, we pretty much relaxed for the rest of the day! I worked on some essay writing (which I completed…thank god!!!) and we snuck out for a little walk with Ella. But besides that it was pretty chill as you can see…
Someone needs a haircut! This week for sure.
Later on we headed to dinner at a local restaurant called Betty’s!
They actually specialize in vegetarian cuisine! But the menu offers meat options as well! Perfect mix of both worlds.
A little ambiance…
To start we shared the Mediterranean Dipping Plate!
[Tabbouleh, lentil dip, humus, baba ghanoush, feta, olives, cucs, tomatoes, marinated onions, and warm grilled pita!]
We enjoyed our dinner’s in the dimly lit room over great conversation!
House Salad with fresh fruit added:
Vegetarian Shepherd’s pie with lentils, veggies, and potato goat cheese crust:
We skipped out on desert, as my mom and I had a little surprise for my dad at home…
[Chocolate Intensity cake with Dark Chocolate ganache!]
Needless to say he loved it!
Gifts and cards were also opened!
I got my dad some new, warm pajama bottoms and 4 restaurant.com gift cards! My mom and him have many date nights to look forward too!
I love my Dad so much and am so lucky to have a person like him in my life!
I hope you had a wonderful birthday Dad!! Love you!
