Napa Rose Birthday dinner.

Let's be honest. I have celebrated at least 6 birthdays at Disneyland that I can remember. Including my 21st!

003

Friday night, Andy and I drove to the Paradise Pier hotel for the night. They greeted me with balloons and a Disney birthday button to wear. Yay!

004

After putting our stuff away, we walked to the Hearthstone Lounge inside of the Grand Californian hotel for some drinks.

006

I had a sangria and Andy had a whiskey sour. The sangria here is really excellent. I get it everytime!

007

BFFs Tiffany and Gary came over and got drinks too. Tiffany got a ginger lemonade thing. And I ate too many mixed nuts.

008

That face says it all, I ate way too many mixed nuts.

011

Dinner was at Napa Rose. Napa Rose is inside of the Grand Californian hotel.

013

Andy started with the Smiling Tiger salad. It had tempura lobster, teriyaki beef and all sorts of wonderful flavors. I stole a bite.

014

Tiffany and I split some truffled mac and cheese. I love how it's served in a copper measuring cup.

015

The chef sent out some amuse bouche. Mushroom cappucinos! (It's like a creamy mushroom soup.)

016

Then came entrees, this is Brett's short rib with root veggies.

017

Maggie, Gary and I ordered the veal. It came with agnolotti, okra and cauliflower. I didn't love it. I wish I had but I was too full.

019

Tiffany ordered the Smiling Tiger salad as an entree.

020

and some roasted golden beets.

021

022

I ordered a side of brussels sprouts, butternut squash and parsnips but was WAY too full.

023

For some reason the chef sent out a salad. I took a bite despite being full. It was delicious. And full of leafy greens!

024

Andy ordered quail and pheasent sausage. I did not try any but he raved about his dish.

025

Despite being full, I managed to enjoy my birthday creme brulee. It's served in a sugar cookie cup with fresh raspberries on the bottom.

026

I could have just ordered this and been happy.

029

Brett ordered a chocolate lava cake with a dark chocolate ice cream scoop. It looked like heaven.

030

Andy ordered just a scoop of ice cream.

031

We stumbled into the hotel at midnight, only to find these. I took them home to enjoy later.

Moral of this story: Turning 27 means I have a smaller appetite. At least I know for next time.

Alternate moral: There is always room for creme brulee.

Looks great! I've wanted to try a nicer Disney restaurant. It's nice how the chef gave you other things to try as the meal progressed. Happy birthday!

Wow, what a fun birthday! Truffled mac n' cheese sounds amazing!! Glad you got to enjoy such a nice meal! I've noticed since turning 27 my appetite has slightly decreased as well... it was my first feeling of being "older!" Ha ha. I'm not always so good to listening to my appetite, though. Maybe that comes with age, too. ;)

Happy belated birthday!!

How fun!
There's always room in my stomach for dessert, too. I swear I have a separate "dessert compartment". :)

Those rice krispy treats are so cute.

Happy Birthday!
