birthday steak

august 6th is a pretty important day.  it's Sonny's birthday!  he received love from his entire family all day long, which is how it should be!

his first gift (and two of his most favorite things) came from Chiso:


oreos and gummy bears.  oh and a card.


we found Chiso upstairs knocked OUT the night before and Sonny snagged this gem of a pic.

early morning balloons from his youngest sister, lunch with his little brother, gifts and love from his mom, and his other sister watched Chiso for us while we went out to play!

i got my private date later in the evening for dinner.  I took Sonny to the infamous Eddy V's baby! all the reviews i scoured through were SPOT ON.  we had a fab time and the staff worked super hard to make his day special. i mean really! we HIGHLY recommend Eddy V's for outstanding food and exceptional service, especially for special occasions.

just happy to be on this man's arm!  we started out with two appetizers:


a gorgeous plate of shrimp and pork pot stickers. spicy shrimp and pork in a light soy broth. yeah, it was as delectable as it looks.


and i tried the Fuji apple salad complete with green beans, baby beets, candied walnuts, maytag blue cheese, ginger orange vinaigrette. crisp and sweet.


for my entrée, North Atlantic Lemon Sole!  parmesan crust with tomato and herb salad, lemon garlic butter on tha side.

speaking of sides, crab fried rice? whoa. sugar snap peas with shiitake mushrooms & onions,  sautéed garlic spinach, and a hunk of sourdough bread.

all al la carte, all al la delicious.


this thing needed its own drum roll after weighing in @ a whopping 22 oz of USDA Prime Ribeye.  my goodness.

next, time for something sweet.


which one did we pick? the closest thing to a brownie cause that what Sonny always gets.  the Hot Godiva Chocolate Cake!  and yall, we have NOTHING to show for it cause both of our phones died RIGHT AFTER THE PIC ABOVE.  no kidding. this cake was the highlight of the evening!!!! pissed was not even the word.  however, thank God for Google cause that's exactly what i did.


boom.  hot chocolate cake, creamy, cold vanilla bean ice cream........ :shock:
