T Stands For a belated birthday celebration at Legends

My friend Sally wanted to take me to Legends for my birthday lunch.  Although it was nearly two months late, I can't complain.  After all, I was very sick during much of the latter part of April and first of May.  It was Thursday when we went and "Taste of Italy" day.  It was her idea, because she loves the Italian theme they have.

On the way in, I took a photo of the new airport parking garage that was so close you could almost reach out and touch it.

Sally and I have been here for "Mediterranean" day, and I brought Kathy here on her birthday for "South of the Border" day.  I actually like it any day I visit Legends.  It is one of my favorite eating establishments.  

Sally went for the salads, but the last time we were here, there was no manicotti by the time I got around to finishing my salad.   I made sure I had some, and dessert, before I dove into anything else.  In fact, the waiter hadn't even brought my coffee when I took this photo.

Sally drank water with her meal 

and ordered coffee with her dessert.

There were four salads, including the mixed greens shown here.

Here are the other choices.

It was hard to get the menu and stay out of the photo.  There was garlic bread,

mixed veggies,

manicotti,

ravioli with roasted red peppers,

and Italian chicken, which I didn't get, but Sally did.  I also had a cup of wonderful cream of asparagus soup.

After our meal, we drove by our new airport.  Not only are the building and parking structures new, the name is new, too.  What used to be "Wichita Mid-Continent Airport" is now "Wichita Dwight D. Eisenhower National Airport."  The new terminal was officially opened on June 3, although it was originally slated to open in March.  I'll show more of this airport later in the week.

We know what I celebrated this week.  Did you celebrate, too?  Did you create a drink related spread in an AB or journal, or possibly celebrate with a scrapbook page or more.  Did you venture out and about to unknown or known places with your camera, or maybe stayed in and took photos of something familiar with a drink theme in your home?  Did a new drink related book or movie catch your attention?  However you celebrated, please share it below and Bleubeard and I will be by to visit, as will the rest of the T gang.  Sadly, Squiggles has not yet come out of his shell.

I love Italian food, so my mouth is watering now. Hm, maybe I'll have to make pasta for supper tonight. I hope you had a very happy belated birthday celebration--it sure looks like you did.

After last week's discussion, I hope you don't mind my linking up on Monday. I'm guessing that it's okay...?

Looks like a great place for a birthday celebration. I like those little ceramic chef figures on the tables.

I almost didn't make it today but managed to get a little something posted. I just couldn't miss out on a Tea Tuesday.

We so seldom go out to eat. It's always a treat when we are on vacation because that's pretty much the only option. :)
Happy T day!

Just read your comment to me about flying over Kansas and not being able to have a drink-I had never heard of such a thing!

Kelly Deal said...

I'm starving right now and that food looks so good!

You probably know by now that Italian Food is my favorite. This was a good choice on where to celebrate your birthday since it has been predictably good every time you visit.

It's a good thing we just had manicotti this past Sunday or I'd be heading out to the supermarket for the ingredients!

Carol said...

Looks like a great place to eat !The food looks better than great ♥ Love to eat where the food is good and so is the decor :)

Rita said...

I have never heard of a themed restaurant until this one. So far, I think Italian day would win for me! Looks delicious and worth the wait. :) Happy T-Day, Elizabeth!! :)

Denise Price said...

Hi again! Thanks for letting me know that it's okay to link up on Monday. And yes, I'll definitely post updates on "the great library project of 2015." I've been taking lots of photos of the libraries that we've visited so far this summer, so I think I'll do monthly update posts.
