Happy Birthday to your DD!

I'm making chicken-noodle soup to go along side the BLT's. I wanted to make tomato soup, but I think that is too much tomato with the BLT.

Franks and beans - sauted bacon, onions and hot dogs (cut into bite sized pieces). B & M baked beans added to pot along with my homemade BBQ sauce and rub.

Thanks all! I'll pass on the birthday wishes and I'll try to remember to take a picture of the cake to post.

I am making my first attempt at making Chicken Marsala. It has been on my list of recipes to try for a long time. I am putting the Marsala over fettuccine noodles. I have not decided what I am having for sides, yet. Maybe Brussels sprouts and a green salad.

We're having pan seared salmon, salad, and "pink stuff" for dessert. DH will probably also have some of the chocolate he has stashed by his computer.

I have Beef Barley Stew in my mini slow cooker for the next few days. 'Thinking of putting that over egg noodles to take to work.
Tonight I didn't feel like "cooking", so I had a large Sweet Potato and a small bowl of Three Bean Salad. At least I got my veggies and protein.
