Thanks for all the birthday wishes on Facebook and in my email inbox!
I'm 28 today, which didn't seem weird until it occurred to me that I graduated from high school TEN YEARS ago. Impossible! Tim fixed me the most delicious birthday lunch ever (with a little help on the menu selection). I couldn't think of one way to improve it. Next time you want to treat someone-- and without a lot of work I might add-- try this.
Roasted Beef Tenderloin with Rosemary, Chocolate and Wine Sauce
Roasted Green Beans with Onions and Walnuts
Best Birthday Cake
PS- If you haven't tried beets since you were a kid and they came in a can, try them again. They're very tasty and not nearly as messy as you think.
PPS- Here's Ellie, wondering what she has to do to get some of that lunch.
