Today being my birthday, DH took me for a wonderful buffet dinner at the Crossroads restaurant in Elmira Ontario. It was a beautiful day for a drive, so we headed out around 2 p.m and had a nice view of the countryside seeing the Amish working up their fields with their horse drawn equipment getting ready for planting this years crops. There were stands of fresh maple syrup for sale along the roads, and fresh eggs and loaves of bread and home baked pies. We arrived at the Crossroads around 3:30 just when the dinner buffet started. We feasted on delicious salads, then we headed up to fill our plates with the main course. There was turkey, ham, fish, beef, pastas, dozens of vegetables and homemade breads and biscuits. One could never sample all they had, there were so many choices. For desert there were dozens of pies, cobblers, squares and puddings. The mississippi mud pie is my favorite, so I made sure I saved room for a piece. Needless to say, we were both stuffed when we left. The Crossroads is becoming one of our favorite places to visit for special occasions. I also had a busy week lunching with a few friends to celebrate. I even had one of my neighbors sing "Happy Birthday" on my answering machine LOL. When I got back from walking the dogs to the bush I heard it. It made me laugh. She sings much better than I do and she is in her 80's!
