Team Celery Birthday Extravaganza

 Our evening started out with happy hour and then dinner and drinks at Toulousse Petit in Queen Anne.
If you haven't been there, you need to go.
It's amazing.
First I needed something to wear though.
I didn't want to squeeze into an old dress and feel bloated, so a friend generously donated a maternity dress for me to wear!
It was so comfy!

The  restaurant's menu is massive and I had a hard time making decisions.
 There are so many good things on there!
 Luckily since we got there for Happy Hour, I was able to sample a few items in smaller portions.
I started off with :

Fried Green Tomatoes with Remoulade ( To die for)
Sinister Spicy Fried Shrimp ( Hot!)
Pommes Frites with Aioli ( Who doesn't love some fries?!)
The Birthday Girl!

For Dinner I had:

Cauliflower and White Truffle Soup
with Dungeness Crab and Chervil white pepper, chives, crème fraiche
Housemade Ricotta Gnocchi
with Hedgehog Mushrooms, Butternut Squash, & Cippolinis
shallots, thyme, mushroom stock, truffle oil
 ( Barley had room to eat this)

Cauliflower soup ( best thing I have ever eaten)

Sweet potato Gnocchi

Everyone had delicious drinks but me!

The ladies

Then it was onto the show!
We took a taxi over to the Paramount to see Anjelah Johnson.
Who I actually had never heard of , but she has a huge following.
She was on Mad T.V. and a few movies recently.
It was a full house.

The gorgeous theater

My gift for Angela!
She has two Bostons.

Hope you had a fun weekend too!
