Ah, birthdays. Not that I actually wanted to "celebrate" celebrate... just a night off from cooking, grab a bite with my guys, etc. So, we went to the Comet Cafe and lo and behold... the specials blackboard pulled me into its orbit with the offering that shone like St. Peter with a halo: Duck Confit Poutine. Yes, you read that right. Duck confit + fontina curds + beer gravy + fries = happiness.
Sometimes it doesn't take a lot to make things right with the world. Happy Birthday, indeed.
