What's For Dinner?: Alexis' Birthday Edition!

What's For Dinner Alexis Birthday Edition

We have a tradition that you get to pick what you want to eat on the day of your birthday. Alexis chose waffles for breakfast, pizza for lunch and drum roll please....

For dinner she has chosen spaghetti! Shocker I know! ;oP I'm going to make a fresh pasta topper with grape tomatoes, asparagus, onions, mushrooms and a little thyme and rosemary for me and regular spaghetti for Alexis and Jamison.

Tomorrow she'll get back on a more healthy, less bad carb laden track, but for today it's her birthday so it's all good! ;o) Saturday is her actual birthday. We're having a Tinkerbell party and her cake will be then! I hope to have pictures of the cake to share. We'll see how the cake ends up and if I can get a good shot with the cameras available. I miss my 20D! :o(

What are you having?

Update: 5:39 PM: While Alexis was playing I spent the past few hours weeding the flower beds. I'm in the mood for anything, but something warm, so I made up a veggie and fruit plate with cucumbers, cherries and blueberries for my dinner instead. Sometimes when you're hot, you just want something light and cold to eat! Jamison and Alexis are still having spaghetti. :o)

I'd appreciate your pasta topper recipe on your blog one of these days! I am grilling your thyme corn and some orange roughy fish with a dijon/chive sauce that I found on the internet.

Thanks Carrie, she had a fantabulous day!

There are a few of the pasta toppers I make linked on today's post. Next time I make the one with mushrooms and asparagus I'll post it too.
