We are still celebrating our anniversary, but we were also celebrating my friend Janet’s birthday as well. But then, we really don’t need too many reasons to celebrate. Life, after all is a celebration, and I will always find a way to celebrate all the good things life has to offer. We started off by going to our favorite winery, InVINtions, A Creative Winery, InVINtionsWine.com, where we were tasting and sampling some of our favorite wines.
After we had finished with our wine tasting, we ventured across the parking lot to a really good Middle Eastern/Moroccan restaurant, Sahara, Sahararestaurant.net, where we had a complete Moroccan experience with great food and belly dancing. Janet and I got up to try our belly dancing skills as well, but I will leave that to the real dancer who was there. She was very good. My belly dancing skills still leave much to be desired, and there is WAY to much belly on me, so I will leave the belly dancing to the professionals at the moment. I really enjoyed her veil dance.
We started our dinner off with some delicious hummus and warmed pita bread.
Then the main courses came. When we go to exotic or different places, we tend to order a variety of plates then share, so we can all get a sampling of the different flavors. We ordered a beef, chicken and a lamb dish. All came with saffron rice and vegetables. We all had our favorites, but all three of the dishes were delicious.
As always, when we get together with our friends Janet and Bob, we had a great time and a very entertaining evening. As I have said many times, good friends and good food; life doesn’t get much better than that.
