A Very Special Birthday!

Myplate2yours celebrates 4 years!  Thank you to my friends and followers for your continued interest and encouragement in everything good-tasting & healthy!  My own birthday falls within the same week and this year, these 2 birthdays turned into one very special celebration.  Here is my story in pictures:

I was surprised on my birthday with breakfast in bed, compliments of my 16 year old son!

On my birthday, I was surprised with breakfast in bed, compliments of my 16 year old son! It was very balanced: fresh fruit salad, a bagel and my favorite coffee yogurt!

Just 3 days later, I flew to France to join my husband who was there for business. Here we are in Paris on the top of Notre Dame!

Thanks to our friends in Nantes, I was treated to a cooking class for my birthday. Chef Laurent Saudeau of Restaurant Manoir de la Boulaie prepared 6 exquisite dishes in this three hour class.

We had the privilege of enjoying this lovely lunch on the Brittany coast. These fresh caught langostinos were delicious!

The next day, we had the privilege of enjoying a beautiful day on the Brittany coast and this fresh caught lunch. These steamed langostinos were simply delicious!

It was a wonderful 4 days… but now that I’ve returned (full and happy), I’m refreshed and ready to cook, write and teach. You may just find some French-inspired recipes published soon!
