Part 1 of my birthday dinner I made myself. Part 2 will be next weekend when my husband takes me out to my favorite restaurant. We really don't eat out too much. I love to cook so much, I don't even mind making my own birthday dinner. We love to stay in, have cocktails, cook a meal and eat it with some nice wine. We don't even have to worry about driving home! Thanks to Kathleen's blog, I found this recipe for Champagne Shrimp and Pasta. It looked just easy and decadent enough for my birthday. We were not disappointed! It was divine. I gave the recipe 5 stars.
This is a picture of the free birthday cookie I recieved from the bakery of the store I work at. I'm not particulary fond of Hello Kitty, but I chose this one because it had the most frosting (and just to be a stinker and irritate my hubby a little because he HATES Hello Kitty with a passion).
