Happy Birthday Joanna

OK I know it's a bit early as my sister's birthday isn't until Saturday but seeing as my birthday went on for an extended period I thought we'd start early for hers, especially as I won't see her for her actual birthday.  So to celebrate we went out for an early dinner at La Boheme in Lymm.  We were looking for somewhere nice to eat somewhere about half way between where we both live and found this gem.
It was a great menu and we weren't disappointed, the food was fabulous and the service was professional, friendly and fun.  So for all those foodies here's what I had:

A kir royale to start

The taster plate

For a starter
Gratin De Fruits De Mer Maison
Fresh king scallops, king prawns tails & mussels, bound in a leek & dill mornay, topped with bread-crumbs & oven baked until gratinated

For main
Magret Aux Deux Saveurs
Gressingham duck breast roasted to pink, served on miette potatoes flavoured with Savoy cabbage, oregano, parsley, white onion marmalade & sun-dried tomatoes, dressed with a tangy green peppercorn & orange sauce

For dessert
Strawberry Trio
Strawberry soup. strawberry ice cream in a sweet pastry basket and a mini mille feuille
We were good and shared the pudding!

We went for dinner early which was great as I had some bits I had to do once I got home.  So whilst I had my craft stuff out I made this card for the challenge at:
The Pink Elephant - colour challenge - pink and black
I've left it without  message so that it can be used for any occassion.

I hope you've had a lovely evening.
