The fish taco's turned out pretty good tonight. I liked the thin sliced cucumber and onion with the shredded cabbage. The sauce was good made with yogurt and green taco sauce, cumin and Mexican oregano. Next time I'll cook the corn tortillas crisper in oil, and pay more attention to the fish. Next time the fish will be done the right way with cornstarch, egg, and Panko. Bobby Flay's grilled fish just isn't for me. They needed that "crunch". Live and learn.

2) Salmon marinated in maple syrup on a fresh mango salsa
3) Chicken souvlaki with rice pilaf and mixed steamed veggies
4) Homemade strawberry balsamic sorbet with gluten free cake.

I hope he will enjoy it as much as I will making it!
Well, things got changed around a little seeing that a 10 minute quick trip to the grocery store included not one but 4 almost accidents, none of which were my fault. It's a known fact that people out here can't drive in the snow, but in the sun? Give me a break!

Anyway, the gazpacho ended up being replaced by a spinach salad and the rice pilaf became baked potatoes when I realized I was out of the right rice for pilaf. But the salmon, chicken, salsa and sorbet (no cake) were excellent and he was both pleasantly surprised and happy with the food! He thanks everyone for the birthday wishes.

I needed some comfort food so it was hot dogs, beans, and mac-n-cheese.

Why thank you, Snip!
I took some pics of the soup in progress. If you wouldn't mind, I could post them in your thread. You can tell me how I did.
