The whole fam gathered together this afternoon for my brother’s birthday lunch.
Holy big 3-1!
Per usual, my Mom made a fantastic, summer BBQ feast.
Balsamic Artichoke Pasta Salad (similar to this recipe.)
Corn on the Cob (which was promptly cut off the cob.)
Green beans & bacon.
And Baked Baby Back Ribs!
31 candles is a bit much to squeeze onto our tiny, traditional Pepperidge Farms birthday cake, so my Mom put on…7 candles?
Nevermind the candles, just gimme the cake!
Pepperidge Farms Birthday Cake is the ONLY cake we serve in our family. I get giddy when birthdays roll around because it is SO. GOOD.
That is one good lookin’ family!
Finn provided the post lunch/birthday cake entertainment. His new thing is saying "Ohhh, insert first name here." in a tone of voice that suggests the person he is slinging the expression at has does something completely insane.
Well I had planned on making pulled pork sandwiches for dinner tonight, but I think two meals centered around pork is a bit too much for even this gal. Perhaps a little homemade chipotle burrito bowl action is in order??
Have a great night!
