Celebrate Good Times with CAKE

Thursday, September 12, 2013

Today is my dad's birthday. And we did a little celebrating last night. How do you know you've celebrated the right way — when you are so miserable from all the food and fun at bedtime.

We started off the evening with the Mr cooking up some sausage to snack on while the HUGE steaks were grilling. Mom and I went with filets and the Mr and dad had ribeyes. MB was the supervisor.

Now, y'all know I've been having a big problem with meat here lately. And we've finally figured out part of the problem.

1) The smell of the meat or the smell of the meat cooking turns me off, quickly.
2) Handling the meat makes me gag.
3) Chewing big pieces of meat — a big no no, and the texture has to be right.

I've slowly been able to add meat back into my meals as long as the above three do not happen. I'm proud to say I almost ate half of my steak last night. But I've noticed that I get full a lot quicker than before, and I'm wanting to eat more smaller snacks throughout the day.

Anyway, to accompany the steaks, we had baked potatoes, baked beans, salads and rolls. Yeah, a lot of food. The Mr and I bowed out of the salads because we knew we would never be able everything we already had on our plates.

If you follow me on instagram you know that I was craving a slice of his birthday cake ALL. DAY. LONG.

And we finally got to cut into it after singing Happy Birthday, and MB giving Papa some kisses!

Happy Birthday Dad! We love you and hope you have a great day!
