Birthday Eats

A lot of you were wondering what I baked/made for the mister's birthday so instead of telling you, I thought I'd show you.

For breakfast, chocolate zucchini muffins...
For dinner, steak and potatoes with baked asparagus...
And a little wine cake for dessert...
(I was going to make rolls as well, but I wanted to make them right so I'm going to whip them up this weekend instead when I can really commit to them time-wise).

What do you think readers? (I assure you it was all very tasty!) Do you prefer a home-cooked meal or to go out for your birthday?

Happy almost Friday!

Yum! Looks delish!! I bet Ben was one happy man!

If I dated a guy that cooked, I'd love a meal in. But that seems pretty unlikely, so I think in general, dinner out is what will happen. If I lived closer to my parents, I would def choose a meal made by my mom over a meal out, though!

everything you made sounds amazing! i'd stay in for a birthday meal like that.

We usually go out for birthdays, but I like the idea of a home cooked meal and getting to eat what you want on your birthday. Some of my friends' moms would let them choose their birthday dinner growing up and I always thought that was so cool!

Um, YUM! This all looks amazing. I'm sure it was delicious.

We have birthday week in my household so we get a blend of our favorite restaurant plus whatever we want to cook/cooked for us. It's kind of fun. I prefer to be home with my family on my birthday with some fabulous homecooked meal but that's just me. I do love a good Mexican fiesta too, though :)

Looks AMAZING! Especially those chocolate zucchini muffins. YUM!

My grandma used to always make me the best birthday dinners. It makes me miss living at home because she would make whatever we requested and I loved it. When I used to eat meat ham and scalloped potatoes were usually the dinner I requested! I still LOVE scalloped potatoes :)
