31 years and what do you get?

a cute little girl to eat all your birthday treats for you!

Rich had a great bday. He had waffles made with his sole b-day present (new waffle iron). Really good waffles I might add. On birthdays I get off my healthy horse. So we had overnight waffles, which are made with yeast and whole stick of butter. Yum.

Then he had to work. Boo.

While he was gone we cleaned the garage. Boo.

Then we made chicken fried steak and potatoes for dinner. I suck at cooking meat. Especially fried meat. I do it once like every few years - not enough practice to succeed. Ah well, I tried with love and even got burnt with oil. Classic richard - he was still nice even though dinner was stinky. He pretended to like it and didn't complain one bit. He never complains.

So that was dinner - potatoes and steak. Richard said "where's the vegetables?" I said - "it's a richard meal, no vegetables." He said - "I would have at least liked some brussels sprouts or something." Wow I thought, I didn't see that one coming! 31 years and what do you get - a love for vegetables!!

No pictues of the gross dinner.

But after a mound of dishes we had dessert. Peanut butter pie. I've been wanting to make this for Richard for years. I decided 31 is the year to live like you are dying - so I followed the recipe with only 1 low fat sub - light cream cheese. I don't feel like typing it out and can't find it online, but I'll just say it has more than 1 stick of butter in it. And it was good, even anna can attest (she ate 1/2 of richards).

Some friends invited us over - but Richard wanted to stay home and watch sports. And by sports I mean sport S. Classic rich: TV and internet games going all at once. If we had a radio in the house Im sure that would be going too. We need picture in picture cable so he can watch them both on TV and I can use the computer. I feel bad, but I've been getting over a cold and I am super tired from pregnancy, so I went to bed at 8. Hope you know I still love you hunny! Happy birthday. Thanks for all you are and all you do for us.

chicken fried steak is a tough recipe to perfect--at least the few times I've tried it, I don't get it right.

Love the pic of Anna staring down the pie.

This is Levi, I do the same thing, but I do have picture in picture on the TV, and watch one on the computer. So I really watch three games. It drives Jamie nuts.
