Birthday dinner!

Now try not to be jealous when I tell you that I had just a few shelling peas left from last week’s pickup in the refrigerator for this evening.  Just enough for a few bites each with dinner.  I also roasted – yes, roasted, I admit to a touch of hypocrisy by turning my oven on tonight – anyway, where was I?  Oh yes, we roasted zucchini, potatoes, mushrooms, and tomatoes, all tossed with olive oil, dill, red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper.  They were delicious.  Nothing like roasted vegetables fresh from the farm.

To justify having the oven warmed up, we also made strawberry shortcake.  Since Carolyn introduced Jeff to the joys of Bisquik, I think he will always refer to this as her recipe.  It’s simple but delicious.  Some whipped cream made for a great topping – though with a bit less of the flair, drama, and excitement of the Galizio’s magical whipping canister.

It was a great birthday dinner.  Now we need to go walk the dog to help with the digestion of all this great food!

    I totally thought about that magical night out on the deck tonight as we had this strawberry shortcake dessert. I recalled grandpa Perry taking control of the whipper for his final bite of shortcake and thinking…..hmmm…this could get messy ;). I guess we were celebrating b-days that night too. This must just be the b-day dessert.
