Better late than never…..

Between my work schedule and the husband’s travel schedule we didn’t get a chance to celebrate my birthday.  Since it usually falls around Mother’s Day I like to avoid restaurants at all costs so that leaves me one option, cooking dinner for myself!

I make a bittersweet chocolate torte in the morning because it needed to sit in the fridge for at least three hours after it had cooled completely on the counter. What a wonderful, wonderful thing for me to do for myself, it was AMAZING!

Rich, deep, dark, chocolate…..sigh……it was luscious.

For dinner I kept it simple, grilled Filet Mignon, Salad, and a Baked Potato.

I indulged even more with a lovely blue cheese sauce for my steak, heavy on the blue cheese.

It was a dinner worthy of a celebration and better than anything you would find in any restaurant in the area.  Happy Birthday to ME!

  1. I’m sorry you had to make your own BDay dinner but it sure looks AWESOME! I know with your seafood allergy it is hard to go to a restaurant due to cross contamination. But, I don’t think any restaurant could rival your homemade meal. All that money you spent on a culinary degree certainly is paying off.
