My husband had a birthday today. The menu included for a celebratory Birthday Breakfast:

~fruit salad (grapes, blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, mangoes, gala apples, kiwis)
~These muffins. (Though I substituted raspberries instead of blueberries, and sprinkled sugar on top before baking...fluffy, delicious....just--mmm.)

Dinner plans:

~Bowtie pasta with pesto...cherry tomatoes and fresh mozzarella cubed
~Arugula salad with shaved parmesean, olive oil and lemon (Thanks, Betsy.)
~Bread (of course.)
~Corn on the cob
A picnic if the weather is nice. (Though it looks like rain.)

And of course, as with every birthday, Daddy requests a Carvel Ice Cream cake, every year.

Happy Birthday, love.

sounds really simple, healthy AND yummy!! (Apart from the cake which looks slightly *less* healthy but equally heavenly! Wish we had Carvel in the UK =( - Oh well...)
Have a wonderful celebratory day :o)

That's my request for a cake every year! It drives my husband crazy, but it's a tradition since I was a little girl!

Happy Birthday to you him!
