It was a fun family get together for my birthday this year. My hubby looked after all the preparations while I was out caring for my grandbaby. He did a super job too.
He grilled burgers and smoked sausage. The sides were Ground Beef and Baked Beans Casserole from Y’All Come Eat cookbook by the Deen Brothers, mac and cheese, and Arugula Mushroom Salad with Macadamia Nuts from a Publix Apron’s recipe. On top of all that, Don even prepared a chocolate birthday cake with chocolate icing.
Impressive yes, but wait till you see the extra special dessert he surprised me with.
I’d been craving some panna cotta since our cruise last year. It was one of my favorite desserts on board. I was thrilled that he made some for me, and it was even better in the shape of a teapot. It was delicious and creamy (I love Ricotta cheese).
There were also flowers, cards, gifts and lots of laughter served up with this memorable birthday meal.
