My birthday surprise ended up including mimosas at a bowling alley/bar, chocolate cupcakes with salted caramel on top, then dinner at a nice Mexican place -- veggie tacos, refried beans, a salty dog and chocolate spicy cake I barely ate because I was so stuffed.

For Easter dinner (really lunch), I made chicken Marsala and pasta primavera, with Ciabatta rolls and chocolate cupcakes filled with Bailey's cream cheese.

Then we went to Epcot, and had a late afternoon snack of a beer flight, meatloaf sandwiches, and latkes.

Dinner was cheese, crackers and an apple.

I appear to have consumed a bag of Maple Bacon Jerky.  That was not my original plan for dinner, but I'm not hungry anymore.  Oh well.

I've done that with cake before.  It just automagically apparates into my stomach.

We'll be having the remainder of the Easter ham slice with sweet potatoes and creamed spinach.  We'll also be having a luscious vanilla gelato with fresh raspberries.

We'll be finishing the bottle of our Easter wine while watching 'Dancing With the Stars'. 

It will be a very pleasant Monday evening.

Saturday, DH made an excellent roasted poblano and pork chili with fresh cornbread.

Tonight, I am making a baked pasta with meat sauce and mozzarella.

Baked sweet potatoes, and okra and tempeh in a mustard sauce last night.

Tonight I will come up with something to make the red lentils I am soaking taste good. My fiance just told me he's going out, so we will surely have leftovers.

Hmmmmm

Veggie burger, curly fries and a local Pilsner that I'm going to pretend I burned off by yelling at the game.

I had a stir fry dish of beef, tofu and vegetables in a quick sauce that combined oyster sauce, soy sauce, pomegranate sauce, peanut sauce, and Szechwan sauce. Umm.

Chicken and rice with a salad.

Cabbage rolls and stuffed peppers. What can I say, I made too much stuffing, ran out of cabbage and had bell peppers about to go off...

freezer chicken noodle soup.

When Winco had a great chicken sale, I made up huge bathes of stock and froze them. I also shredded the chicken meat, portioned it out an froze it. I'll chop up some celery and onion, then add in a bag of frozen mixed veggies and egg noodles.

Homemade soup with minimal effort on cooking day :)
In the United States today, there is a pervasive tendency to treat children as adults, and adults as children.  The options of children are thus steadily expanded, while those of adults are progressively constricted.  The result is unruly children and childish adults.  ~Thomas Szasz
