I spatchcocked a chicken and grill roasted it on the egg. Bourbon glazed carrots and broccoli for sides. I also did some chicken breasts on the weber for some green chili enchiladas during the week. Today I'll make the chili sauce.

Nice pics. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks Pac, I almost forgot to take pictures and then I couldn't seem to edit out the doubles in the post and I was to tired to fight it anymore. Yes, hubs dinner looked very good, I had a taste, it was yummy. Wish I could say the same for mine :( but the wine was good and the free lava cake was excellent ;)

sorry bunny, you deserved better than that--especially on your birthday! next time will be better. it helps that you have a positive attitude about life's disappointments, sb, and as you like to say, "...drink more wine". the b-day lava cake was a nice touch, too.

The roasted chicken was delish, the butternut squash turned out wonderful as well, and I ended up making stuffing to go with the gravy. I posted the Savory Roasted Butternut Squash recipe in the Cooking Contests forum.

[QUOTE=Somebunny;1204986]I had lobster for my birthday dinner. It was okay, maybe a little tough and the drawn butter was not melted when it arrived at the table.....and really??? 3 green beans constitutes a vegetable??? ;-). Oh we'll all in all it was pretty good and since I mentioned to the waitress that it was my birthday, she brought me a lava cake for dessert it was yummy! ;-). DH had the special which was a BBQ RIBA and chicken platter, he said it was very good and there was plenty.


Sorry to hear your dinner was no good. tis the year for bad birthday food
Hubby took me out for my birthday too and I got rubber band calamari and food poisoning

At least the wine was good and the company

SB, what a fabulous looking dinner, sorry to hear about your lobster being overcooked though!

Sounds like a good night out though

Attachment 16281 we started with the much touted Calamari, we quite enjoyed it as it was not rubbery as improperly cooked Calamari can be.
