I also discovered my husband does not like raw peppers. Check.
I've been occasionally forgetful about taking photos of my meals. I remembered to photograph meaningless scenery at the restaurant where we enjoyed Dirk's entry into his forties. This is a pretty good Mexican restaurant at the end of Santa Monica pier. The views were lovely, the service well above average, and my chicken burrito was tasty. Sorry for the lack of evidence. http://www.mariasol.com/
My birthday also happened. Dirk and I are birthday twins (month and day only). I am a hearty 32. Evan and I stopped at Cheesecake Factory for one of my top salads. Chinese chicken, no oranges, with their low cal dressing (so I can eat the entire thing, right?). Then we (finally) found a dining room table. This is no small victory.
The remnants of Evan's Ahi salad. He liked it very much. http://www.thecheesecakefactory.com/
