DH and I traditionally each have the same thing for birthdays. Outback blooming onion and a wedge salad with filet. I know its not gourmet, or anything, but we just fell into the habit of having that. Birthday cake, of course.

I'm not sure what gourmet birthday meal I would choose, but it would be a very high calorie one, like Lobster Newburg maybe..

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.
Oh, I have had those rocky mountain oysters. They smell good when they're cooking, but they're kinda gross.

Hi,

I know this is off-topic but I really want to know.

I was thinking of preparing a cheesesteak at home, and I wanted to know what is the best bread to use, what is the best beef to use, and would Lawry's seasoning salt be adequate as a seasoning for the meat.

A bread-plate-sized portion of Lobster Thermador
One perfectly-formed baked stuffed shrimp with real crab stuffing
A 2-bite portion of a fillet mignon medallion wrapped in bacon

A side salad of wild field greens, glazed pecans, gorgonzola cheese, organic grape tomatoes, and garlicky balsamic vinaigrette dressing.

Several stalks of of sauteed asparagus with olive oil, soy sauce, and garlic.

For dessert: Creme broulee with a thin layer of chocolate fudge lining the bottom of the custard dish.

To drink - fresh-made sangria with brandy and chunks of fresh citrus fruit in the glass. No ice. A glass of spring water with lemon and lime on the side as well - again, no ice.

My favorite establishment uses french loaves, but any hoagie roll will do. Just make sure it's one that will toast nicely and isn't too soft and squishy because the fillings can get kinda soppy. The traditional method would have you use a ribeye roast, but I've made homemade cheesesteaks with deli roast beef. (The traditional Philly cheesesteak also uses cheese whiz, but our favorite place uses provolone and it is PERFECTION!)

Not sure what Lawry's seasoning is, but it'll probably work. Or just a dash of salt and pepper.
