Since I will not be in town for my birthday, this year, my darling daughter took me out to a special, early birthday lunch. We went to Bonnie Bell's Bistro, in downtown Lafayette, for a bit of Cajun gourmet dining. It has a nice, cozy dining/ bar area and is a very popular lunch spot.
This wonderful little Bistro has a fantastic menu that will please even the most discerning of palates. We took our time studying the menu and had a nice glass of wine, while we caught up on each others lives. The crab cakes caught my eye, as did the crab salad. I wanted to keep it light!
We decided to split an appetizer, before ordering an entree. The appetizer that we chose was the Lump Crab Salad w/ corn, black bean, avocado relish, served with blue corn tortilla chips. It was out of this world with a zesty lime dressing.
It was a hard choice, but I decided to order the Jalapeno Crusted Yellow Fin Tuna. This succulent dish was served on a bed of fresh avocado, tomato, and mozzarella. What a wonderful start to my, one week long, birthday bash!
She presented me with a lovely gift certificate to one of my favorite stores and with one of the most beautiful birthday cakes that I have ever seen. She is the most wonderful daughter that a mother could hope for. And my dear son will be taking me out to dinner, for some sinful Cajun seafood. Now you understand why I had to eat a light lunch! Let the good times roll, cher!
