The Birthday Menu

Iceberg wedge with homemade blue cheese dressing

Oven-roasted chicken

Chili Roasted Potatoes (alá Rachael Ray)

Sprinkles cupcakes (strawberry for me, milk chocolate for D)

And for starters…Grey Goose Pear Vodka! (It was on sale at the grocery store!) (Hell yes!)

    Iceberg Salads are amazing. But I’m a ranch kinda girl. I’m so jealous of your yummy menu!

    WOW. . .I just checked out that “Sprinkles” website and I’m about to cry that there aren’t any in freaking Austin. SAD! But great menu!

    Are you going to sprinkle bacon bits on top of the lettuce wedges? That’s what Paula Deen does and she is my cooking oracle.

    I don’t understand how one eats a wedge salad without cutting really big bites and still manages to get dressing evenly distributed. So I avoid them, like a good problem-solver.

    Wow! That’s so unheard of! 16 years and now he’s a meat man?! Crazy.

    I just made roasted baby red potatoes with onion last night …so delicious. I have a lovely homemade herb butter recipe if you’d like it. I would rub it all over my body but, people would stare…again. It goes really well with all kinds of veggies, potatoes, roasted chicken (ahem) and I also put it on my Turkeys at Thanksgiving.
