My Birthday Meal

Here's my birthday cake. Usually, the birthday person decides what kind of cake they want and it is baked by the rest of the family. Last year, I had chocolate cake with cherry frosting. Since we were at the beach house, it wasn't practical, so I picked this out from the grocery store. It was a double layer white cake with vanilla pudding in the middle and chocolate frosting. Can you make out the numbers through the blazing fire?!

Art picked out the vino! Nice picks, honey.

Art said he'd cook me whatever I wanted for my birthday! That's the kind of guy he is. So I said stir-fry. On the right burner, you see the veggies: green beans, carrots, celery, and cabbage was added later. On the lower left burner is some Morning Star "steak". On the upper left burner is risotto with fresh asparagus. It was perfect!

The lighting is funky, but here's the finished plate. He added some grapes on the side, and fresh roasted almonds on top of the stir-fry. Major Yum.

C'etait tres bon, merci. Complimentez le chef de ma part!
