Very nice! What a great snack plate.

Oh, I forgot to say...
My freezer container was stuffed pepper soup, which I remember being very thick, so I peeled a couple small spuds and will serve it over mashed potatoes (with garlic and cream cheese). I also made a BIG salad using romaine, tomato, vidalia onions, carrots, Ken's Steakhouse blue cheese dressing and some crumbled blue cheese on top. Everything is ready to go as soon as I get hungry.

I'm thinking it's going to be pork chops and potatoes.

It was my partner's birthday, so we went out with a bunch of friends. But I did whip up a birthday cake for him. He wanted a chocolate cake with some cherry flavor. So I made a chocolate torte with cherry buttercream icing spiked with a bit of kirsch, enrobed with dark chocolate ganache, topped with fresh whipped cream and cherries.

I ended up making salisbury steaks with the hamburger and served it with glazed carrots and green beans and mashed taters and gravy.
