After spending the day at the golf course at the fundraising event for the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, I headed back to the apartment to meet with Brian and his parents before heading to dinner with them.

We went to a little restaurant called Fire by the Monon.  Brian and I had been there once before after Tori’s bridal shower, but since we had just come from snacks and desserts at the shower, I didn’t have an appetite for anything and ended up not eating at the restaurant.  So, tonight, I was excited to actually try the food at this crafty, cute restaurant.


I ended up ordering the Nero salad, which was a bed of romaine lettuce topped with tomato, mini croutons, parmesan cheese, grilled asparagus, and then I added smoked trout.  At first, I considered ordering the salmon on top, but I wanted to try something new and they smoke the trout in house…sounds like my decision was made for me.  I ordered the smaller sized salad since I was getting the fish on top, and although our waitress thought that this was the size of a side salad, I am glad that I opted for the smaller version.


I was glad for the smaller version because, soon after we finished our meals, we heard singing as the waitresses brought out two lava cakes with ice cream for me, Brian, and his parents to share.  His parents made a special request…so sneaky!

The cake was delicious and the perfect way to end Brian’s birthday night.


I hope you all had a great start to the week.  I am off to bed so that I can be well-rested for my indoor cycling class tomorrow morning.  See ya bright and early!
