Stephen's Birthday Dinner

Stephen turned the big 2-9.  And he spent it on a work trip in Miami.  Now, before you say (like I did) "aww, poor baby.  Spending your birthday on the beach, whah whah" remember that he was alone, without his family, and 3 hours of it were on the plane.  I know.  I still said "whah" too :)

I promised him when he got home we'd celebrate his birthday, and what better way than through his tummy with some soul food?  I made homemade chicken fried steak, macaroni and cheese (both Luby's recipes), hot rolls and mashed potatoes (for me) and rice (for him).  Brian joined us for the festivities, and a great time was had by all.  Oh...and we had molten chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream for dessert.  Cardiac arrest, anyone?

Happy Birthday, Stephen.  Thank you for being such an amazing husband and father!  We love you so much! 


  1. Happy Birthday Bud! That meal looks AMAZING.

  2. Happy Birthday to Stephen!! Also, I would love the chicken friend steak and mac n' cheese recipes! My grandmother used to LOVE Luby's...every time we went, we'd get the chicken friend steak and mac'n'cheese!!! :) :)
