Chopsticks Birthday Dinner

So, it's my birthday on Friday, but due to scheduling conflicts within my family, we had my birthday dinner last night. I chose Chopsticks in Castlegar, which is seriously the best Chinese food & sushi around these parts. I also went there last year.

We had a huge feast of both sushi & Chinese food and it was amazing! Here are the highlights.

I started off with a nice girly drink - a pina colada. Yum!

We then had a starter of Wor Won-Ton. It's the best I've ever had.

The non-sushi eaters had some veggie tempura.
This is the Caterpillar Roll, which is made with BBQ Eel, avocado, and a really good BBQ sauce. It's my favourite and it is sooooo good. Not to mention, the presentation is awesome.
We also had the Dynamite Roll, which is my other favourite. Totally excellent.
Then, onto the Chinese food: Lemon Chicken, Ginger Beef, & Chicken & Mushroom Chow Mein. It was all hot, fresh, and delicious.
There were very few leftovers, I can tell you that! And the best part was yet to come: at home, we had a Dairy Queen ice cream cake - Tin Roof Sunday Blizzard-flavour and it was da bomb!
It was an excellent time with my family and I am truly blessed to have them in my life! On my real birthday, I get to go camping! I'm totally stoked about that!
