Birthday burger

If you’ve read my blog for any length of time, you know that food is very important to RSVPstyle. Anyone’s birthday is an excuse to go out to lunch. Finally it’s my turn!

I just celebrated my birthday last week, and the decision on where to go was pretty easy. Back to the Counter: A, because I love burgers and don’t eat them very often, and B, because Nicki and Megan are on summer break and would be coming along too.

Kara and Melissa are out of town, but Mari and Marie joined Lissa, me and the kids, and off we went to Kahala Mall. The burger was huge, as usual, but yummy, and yes, I did finish the whole thing.

Mari and Marie split a beef burger with blue cheese and cranberries as well as the special of the month, an ahi burger with greens and a wasabi aioli—a little too artsy-fartsy for me! Bacon, mushroom and cheese I think are all a true burger need.

Instead of my usual diet Coke, I decided to go with their mango mojito because we’d be making mojitos of our own in a few days. It was light, refreshing and yummy—the citrus taste went well with the ranch dripping off my bacon and cheese!

I got some great gifts, birthday kisses and a full tummy. What more could a birthday girl ask for?
