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!
