A Favorite Lunch on My Birthday!

Yes, another year has passed and I'm a year older!  The Herbal Husband has made Causa for me for lunch on my birthday for the past several years!  It is one of my favorite Peruvian dishes.  He takes out the heat for me because I can't have it any more.  It is just as good without it.  We even had frozen peas from our garden in the mix.  Very special.

It is a humid soggy day here in the garden.  Can just relax on my birthday!  Hopefully, you are having a great day as well.  In addition to my special lunch, we are going out to The Pines Tavern for my birthday dinner.  I'll share photos later.  Talk to you later.
Lavender Lemonade
Mixed Seafood Grill with Lemon Risotto and Green Beans
My All Time Favorite, Coconut Cream Pie!
Well, as you can see I oinked out for dinner.  I'm going to have to quit eating for a few days to get back on track!  Oh, the mixed seafood grill was 8 shrimp, a small lobster tail and a crab cake.  Delish!  I was even thinking of calling ahead and asking or demanding that the cream pie of the day be coconut and guess what?  I didn't have to beg, call or demand.  The cream pie of the day because it was my birthday was coconut cream.  They make the best and I did kindly share some with The Herbal Husband.  I had a very good time.  The restaurant was busy.  Having a cup of chai to neutralize the calories!  Well, that's all I have.  I'll talk to you Friday.

Happy Birthday. The causa dish looks intriguing, I will click on your link to it. We celebrated my hubby's birthday last weekend, with a BBQ at our house and our adult sons.

Thanks Peggy. It is my favorite lunch at any time of year. It is really good in summer. I just have to get The Herbal Husband to make it a bit sooner before summer ends! xo

Thanks Barbara. In the last third of my life so have to enjoy it while I can! xo
