Made a Birthday dinner this evening for my honey who turned 51. Did any of us over fifty crowd ever picture ourselves as over fifty when we were twenty or thirty or even forty and still dancing at the disco? And here he is still a young whipper-snapper at fifty-one!
We rarely have beef except for a burger or meatballs with spaghetti. Got some T-bones on special and made potatoes and onions in the microwave with a side of broccoli, glass of Lambrusco and to complete the table decor, a remote control.
Made Leon's favorite - Carrot Cake - recipe at Dinner's Ready. The three candles are symbolic - symbolic of the fact that I could only scrounge up three candles from the junk drawer. Leon didn't even wait for me to light the candles and do things properly - as soon as the coffee was done, he cut the cake and dished us both a piece. Not bad.
