thursday night mother-daughter dinner date


last night after work i had a dentist appointment.  ryan was tied up working on the next show that we are doing, and my dad was at work, so my mom and i got together for a mother-daughter dinner date after my dentist appointment.  normally, i don't get to see my parents unless it's a weekend or a holiday, so getting together with my mom was such a nice mid-week treat.

we went out to dinner at a new restaurant that she found called mikuna kitchen.  it is a really neat place that combines indian and ecuadorian cuisine.  the menu changes seasonally and their ingredients are sourced from local farms.  our dinners were so good.  i had an indian vegetable stew and my mom had a delicious falafel sandwich with a cup of fresh passion fruit juice too.  for dessert we split plantains foster.  we loved how it was plated in a long slender dish.  the fried plantains were so good with the vanilla bean ice cream covered in salted caramel sauce.  yum!

it was really nice getting together with my mom for a little mother-daughter dinner date!

have a great weekend!
love, laurie

Thanks! I really enjoyed our dinner date. I think the boys might be jealous. We had a great time sharing food and conversation. It give a nice spark to an otherwise mundane Thursday.
Love that dish.
It was really special!

I think I am still full.
