Just as I retired last night, I learned a dear old friend was wanting to come over, with his brother. We have never met his brother because he has lived in Germany since the '60's. So I pulled out some pork chops from the freezer. Now I learn one more is coming. Only have 4 chops so will have to make do. Will use Kadsmas' onion sauce and chops, fresh mashed potatoes, baked mashed sweet potatoes (will she never use all those tubers?) and another coconut custard impossible pie. Made one last week and thankfully there is not enough left so must make a new one. This is one dish that really shines with the madagascar vanilla.

Today is my birthday, so my husband insisted on cooking me dinner. He also said he would pick up the ingredients he needed at the store, cook, and clean up. We will see. He wants to make me BBQ chicken, baked potatoes, and a salad. Sounds great! He also got a friend of his to make me a homemade b-day cake. Yum!

I am having the leftover crab and scallop stuffed sole, au gratin potatoes, and corn for lunch today, so I suppose I will be having a nice big salad for supper.

Happy birthday, JCook!

I'm waiting for the ILs to show up at any time. They offered to take us out by they haven't seen Sofie since Christmas so I wanted to make sure we had enough re-get-to-know-you time for the three of them. I'm in the middle of making a big pan of baked ziti that will be easy to heat up whenever we're ready to heat. I'll serve it with salad and broccoli with sauteed garlic and red pepper flakes. I didn't even think about a dessert until now!

Well, today is my husband's big "50" birthday. He's not a big birthday celebrater(sp?), but I think I came up with something that might just whet his whistle.

First off, I bought a gift certificate for two for a hot-air balloon ride across central Virginia on the date of our choice within a year's time, followed by a champagne celebration. I went out & bought one of those mylar helium balloons & tied the gift certificate to it - pretty crafty, huh? Lol!! (The cats are mesmerized & the cockatoo is having a nervous breakdown - lol!!)

Second, I bought him a bunch of big coffee-table-type books on subjects of interest to him, along with some DVD's.

Third, I bought a platter of sushi rolls for an appetizer, to be followed by 2 lovely lobsters, followed by eclairs (his favorite dessert).

Do you think I done good?

Tonight I am going to have a Lean Cuisine frozen dinner - I really must lose some weight.
