The Parties are Over!

Today Donna and Julie took me to Dallas to "Rise no. 1" (Souffles) for a birthday lunch.   It was a wonderful experience.   Enjoy the pictures.  
We are sitting at an 18th century school desk.  For entertainment while you wait there are scrabble pieces on the tables.  Julies "Marshmellow soup" is sitting on the desk top that lifts up.  A very old piece.  The glasses filled with water are cut down wine bottles.  Our napkins were kitchen tea towels.  It was a great place.  I need to take Pat back there.  They have a Salmon Souffle that I think he might like to try.
We were surrounded by the aspen trees.  I would say we sat at the Chef's table because I looked right into the kitchen.  The table probably seats 12 although we were at one end and the other end was occupied by another couple.

Here is a picture of the kitchen where they bake all the souffles.   Sorry Julie I should have had you duck or at least look at the camera.  

This was the wine bottle chandelier hanging over our table.  It was huge and very pretty.  

Here is my Jambon & Gruyere Souffle.  It was delicious.  They were very hot so we had to wait a while for them to cool down.  Julie ended up turning hers over onto her plate. 

Donna ordered the Truffle infused Mushroom souffle.  We each tasted all of the souffles.  Julie ordered the special of the day which was Crab Souffle.  The dessert special for the day was a Strawberry souffle.  It was so yummy and very light. 
It was a great birthday week.
Thanks for stopping by.
