I set the table nicely and tried to plan a meal with an abundance of red food. Hubby & the girls each had chocolate, a card, and a gift on their plate. Hubby ended up grilling the meat, which was a big help. I meant to put a drop of red food coloring in the bottom of each glass so that when we poured our drinks they would turn red, but I forgot. Maybe I'll do that with green on St. Patrick's Day, aka Thing Two's birthday...
- London Broil
- Composed salad of spring mix, artichoke hearts, sliced beets & grape tomatoes w/feta cheese dressing
- Farfalle with simple red sauce OR red rice
- Grilled sourdough
- Brussels sprouts, leeks & shredded carrots
Yes, it tasted as good as it looked.
For dessert for Hubby & the girls, an almond-kist red velvet cake with vanilla frosting:
A veritable plethora of cards from family and friends:
Hubby scored some cool gifts, and I got a great card:
