Birthday Love

It turns out that when you don’t post on your blog in 8 months, a lot of things happen.  So the little cutie on the top right was born, then the handsome guy in the bottom right corner had a birthday (hence the lobster and the cake), and the little guy on the top left…

Birthday Week Menu

Okay, I sadly don’t have time to write an in-depth post about every meal in Scott’s birthday week.  But I do have time to tell you what recipes we used.  Not one was a loser. And who gets the credit for this tasty menu?  Scott.  Birthday boy picks birthday food.  His birthday week always includes…

Vanity of a 29.8-year-old
