Birthday Bonanza

In addition to going to St. Louis to eat for my husband's birthday we also ate at home.  It was an entire weekend of stuffing out faces with decadent goodies.  Hmmm, now that I think about it, that's not so different from normal.    Maybe we have a problem.  Oh well, on to the goods.

On Friday night we had appetizers for supper.  We like to do this every once in awhile because it seems special.  We sat on the couch watching terrible movies and eating, eating, eating.  Below is our spread, and we had lots of leftovers.

 From left to right you see a veggie tray with broccoli, carrots, cucumbers, and red, yellow, and green bell peppers, and homemade ranch dip in the center.  The plate at the top contains wheat thins.  In the right tray we had toasted ciabatta bread, bacon wrapped little smokies with brown sugar, goat cheese, colby jack slices, and hot artichoke dip.  The bottom plate has triscuits.

On Sunday night, my husband's actual birthday, we had T-bones, steamed broccoli with black truffle salt, and goat cheese mashed potatoes.  It was a beautiful night, so we ate outside.  After supper we had a Cinnamon cake with chili chocolate butter cream.  You can find the recipe here.  The cake wasn't pretty, but oh so good.
