Looks delicious Jayzz--except for that light beer

We had some hummus and pita for an appetizer of sorts. Dinner was Greek meatballs in Greek tomato sauce and asparagus roasted with olive oil and sea salt. I enjoyed a glass of red wine.

Magic, Iím jealous of your dinner again.

Dinner is carnitas again - they have this Kingsford brand stuff on clearance at my grocery store and they must have bought a lot so I keep picking one up every week. I got the pork steaks this week too. You just heat it up for 15 minutes and pull it with two forks. It has a $2 coupon inside too. #momLogic

I will serve it with flour tortillas, shredded cabbage, chopped tomato, sour cream, and jalapeŮo hot sauce.

Watermelon wedges

Avocado slices & Gorgonzola with a sprinkle of toasted walnuts and drizzled with honey

I felt like comfort food because I am awaiting the results of some blood tests.

I made a creamy French Spring Soup with asparagus, leeks, white rice, baby spinach, baby peas, three large potatoes a garlic clove, vegetable broth and heavy cream, This is an old recipe that I have in my head. The only thing I changed was the addition of the garlic clove. I'm not even sure if it's French.

Salad with frisee, arugula, mandarin orange sections, strawberries, pecans and a raspberry vinaigrette.

DH made an easy banana walnut bread. Lemon balm tea and honey for me.

It was the night for Greek meatballs. I mixed some lamb and ground beef for the meatballs.

It was my birthday today but where I wanted to eat was closed for Sunday so we will be going on Wednesday to a new restaurant about forty-five miles away. The pictures on Trip Advisor look luscious.

So did I want to cook on my birthday? I have some lovely cod fillets and green beans and thought to pick up a couple of twice-baked potatoes but ended up giving in to my annual dirty little secret and DH ran out and brought home a couple of Big Macs and large fries from Mac D's. And we ate all the ketchup we wanted along with it, besides. You couldn't stop us if you tried.

Watched an action movie with Bruce Willis in it on top of all that trashy excess. It'll take me a week to get all that out of my system, I'm afraid.

In the meantime, along with the cut flowers and phone calls from the kids, it was a very satisfying and crudely indulgent birthday.

Happy birthday, Lodestar! It's cool to enjoy guilty pleasures on a birthday. Enjoy the Wednesday dinner, too.

On my way back from a nice afternoon spent mostly walking along the coast in Monterey, picked up a takeout veggie pizza (white sauce, mozzarella cheese, spinach, zucchini, artichoke hearts, tomatoes, garlic, red onions and herbs). Drank English Ales Dragon Slayer IPA.
