Birthday Favorites

by Buck on May 18, 2010

Yesterday was my birthday. It was not one of the memorable birthday years (16, 21. 30, 50 etc) just an vg-happy-birthdayordinary middle of a decade type.

The day was celebrated with a low key dinner with my local Colorado family members. This was not a birth date requiring flying in for the East Coast contingent. The event was low key but the meal was not. I can always count on some care being taken to make sure that some of my favorites are being served on my birthday. . I was not disappointed since Dorothy prepared her award winning lasagna and a birthday cake using her flourless chocolate cake recipe.

Having these two favorites at the same meal is gift enough for any occasion

I have retrieved these two recipes from the archives and encourage you to give them a try.

There is one step that we use, not mentioned in the original posting of the lasagna recipe.
Preparing the lasagna a day in advance and refrigerating it over night helps in the presentation.

Cutting the portions when the dish is cold and then heating allows a firm square to be served. A minute in the microwave does the job of heating for service

Here are the links to the receipes

Happy Birthday, Buck!

I look forward to buying you a belated birthday beverage when I am in town in a couple of weeks.

Hope you’re feeling better.

Happy Birthday Buck!

I know you had a great birthday, with Dorothy treating you in a manner in which you are obviously accustomed!

You and I were born a week apart, as my 73rd birthday was last Monday, May 10.

Hope you are feeling much better!

Cheers!
