It’s my birthday!

Mr. F, my parents, grandparents, my sister and her boyfriend all went to dinner with me, the night before my birthday! We went to Cicchetti in Eastlake. We got to try out my new birthday camera too, so some of these photos are quite creative, due to the lack of flash.
 I had the amazing and unique Butternut Squash Salad!
 I also had the pan fried chicken with quince-ginger glaze and minted green beans! (Yes, there is a food setting on the camera that helps enhance and saturate the food!)
 I also blew out the candles on ricotta fritters with huckleberry sauce! They were delectable. 
 Of course, we had flour-less chocolate cake too! My sister, dad, grandmother and uncle are all chocolate fiends. My mother and I love all desserts, so we always pick a few options!

If you’re ever in Seattle, I highly recommend this Mediterranean restaurant, in addition to its Euro-Italian sister restaurant next door, Serafina!

Please feel free to tell me real people read my blog and not just spammers comment! Cheers!
