Friday we celebrated DS’s 28th birthday. Thank you, yes, the hubster and I DO look soooooo young! The boy, however, is looking mature and older. His features have that grown man look; the chiseld jaw line, the strong forehead…sigh…he’s a nice lookin’ kid if I do say so myself.
- The boy asked for quite the celebratory meal, which is a family tradition in our home. He requested the following:
Scrippelle soup (thin French crepes sprinkled with parmesan cheese and rolled. Once placed in a bowl, hot boiling chicken broth is poured over top. Yummy!)
Shrimp & Pasta Alfredo
Couscous with diced tomatoes, scallions and fresh parsley
Homemade birthday cake
I started cooking at 2:30 and did not finish until 6:00. The feet were tired. But the dinner was fabulous if I do say so myself! I’ve never made Alfredo sauce before. The recipe I was given was super duper easy and delicious!! It is a keeper and definitely will be repeated.
The photo shows the boy opening his birthday present. A one of a kind present; painted and framed by yours truly. He really liked it as did his girlfriend. I showed the gang the rest of my work and the boy has laid claim to another drawing I did which I will post in the coming day or so.
