Waht would be your favorite meal???

Anything I can order in a really nice restaurant where I don't have to pay the bill!

Happy Birthday!

Only so much room in the stomach, so just a few bites of the following foods:

crab legs
pizza
steak
lasagna
calamari
fried chicken

and bacon. lots of bacon.

Oh, yes you are! Agree!

I would like my birthday dinner in that waterside vista setting you describe and I would be up for some serious spoiling here.

To start a large order to SHARE of garlicy shrimp scampi in a butter wine sauce and a small bucket of black mussels in that same kind of sauce...fresh crusty french bread for dipping. Then for the main course, a Petite Filet Mignon grilled and seasoned the way they do it at Lawry's; a three pound steamed Austrailian Lobster Tail (butter, please), baked potato with the works, or a classic risotto; a cold, cold crisp garden salad with all my favorite veggies. For dessert, Strawberry Shortcake or Key Lime Pie. Bring the Kir Royales when you bring the appetizer and keep 'em coming.

My birthday is Monday!

I'm in a cut right now, so I won't be indulging on my birthday. But when I'd spend my birthdays with my family, my favorite meal would either be a cheesesteak with all the fixins (we're from PA) plus fries and onion rings OR anything my mom and dad make, as they are both fantastic chefs. Dessert was always a Wegman's fruit tart. If you live near a Wegman's and haven't tried their fruit tart, you don't know the heaven you've been missing.

I live in Denver at the moment. Since I like to try new things, especially regional dishes, my hypothetical perfect birthday dinner out here would be to finally give Rocky Mountain oysters a try.

My perfect birthday dinner is what I am in the mood for that particular day.
I am not one to be able to plan too far ahead for meals, I do plan ahead the side dishes but the main course is a decision that is made right before preparation unless I'm making meatloaf for sandwiches.
Most of the time I will boil chicken breast or put chicken or beef in the slow cooker then decide what to do with it after it is done.
I do know today though that I am in the mood for sloppy joe so I'll get out a couple pounds of hamburger and get that started soon so we can have it for lunch today.

Sounds lovely

For my birthday, I always used to like having roast lamb with the usual veges including kumera.

Had this year for dinner...

Steak Bons Bons (Beef tenderloin cubes seared on all sides over high heat in butter but left rare inside.) Potato Dauphinoise. Oven roasted balsamic brussel sprouts.

This is what the family makes me for dinner at home. If we go out, it's Asian or Greek.
