A Meal I Will Never, Ever Have to Write About

Lake Tahoe 2014

So my 40th birthday came and went without much fanfare. I didn’t want to make a big deal about saying goodbye to my 30s but when you break it down to the bare numbers, it’s kind of epic. But seeing my amazing friends who are well seated that decade made the transition a lot easier. 

40th Birthday Meal Close Up

Facebook friends wished me lots of nice birthday wishes and not surprisingly, quite a few said wished me an extravagant meal to celebrate. But it was quite the opposite.

Instead, Paul did expressly what I wished. We stayed a few nights at Lake Tahoe not straying too far from the  water and more importantly, I ate whatever was available without having to dissect it for future reference. Toting a dog along for the trip also played into the decision of where we ate and made our choices somewhat limited. So we ate on the beach with a dog always nearby hoping to catch what crumbs we dropped or even a prime piece of food. And it was perfect.
