Birthday dinner







It feels like forever since I posted about food. Honestly, it's been so long
since I really made a cooking effort that I feel a bit out of practice.
But yesterday I cooked my man a belated birthday dinner.


 



A while back I found this mouth-watering recipe by the incredibly talented
and versatile Jacqueline at Purple Chocolate Home: Carne Asada Fries.
With my man's favorite food being Carne Asada I made a mental note.
 (You guys should really check out her yummy cakes and themed parties!)



 



This was every bit as scrumptious as Jacqueline made it look and sound!
The only issue I had was that the time on the package of fries was off,
and they could have been left a bit longer in the oven to become crispy.






For dessert I made blueberry cobbler, served with vanilla ice cream.
It was delicious, though I measured the butter wrong and the crust came out
more flaky than anything else. (Told you I was out of practice).

  2. Holy crap that all looks so good. I've been getting back into cooking too, with sushi, homemade soup and pie. :)

    1. I have been curious about making one's own sushi. Do you make maki rolls? They seem difficult to get right.

  3. The time on package fries is always too low! Glad you two had a nice dinner!

    1. We never eat pre-made/frozen fries, but I have learned my lesson. Although, they can't measure up to home-made potato wedges :)

  9. Oh that looks so delicious! And what a great dessert! Blueberry is so perfect for August and I have a soft spot for the fruit: it is the one of my region, the Saguenay-Lac-St-Jean.

    1. Thank you, Guillaume! I'm a big berry person and I relish all the berries through summer and autumn. My favorite is blackberry.

    1. I hadn't had it in 10 years, and it was pretty disappointing actually. Give me a good strong ale any time!
