Happy Birthday Brent!

Posted on

Wow! It’s been such a fun, exhausting weekend! We went back to our alma mater for a wedding. It was a long drive both ways and a late night. At midnight last night when it turned August 2nd, we toasted not only the bride and groom, but also my husband Brent who turned 28 today! For Brent’s birthday I told him to pick whatever he wanted for dinner and I would make it for him. His choice: fried chicken and mashed potatoes with gravy.

HPIM3911Though I’m not well-known for my ability to fry things, I tackled the project with enthusiasm, covering myself in egg and flour in the process. Here’s a lovely photo of my giving myself the dreaded “club hand” from all the double-dipping.

The chicken came out really well, and the birthday boy seemed very grateful and happy.

HPIM3920Dinner was tasty. I love mashed potatoes and I haven’t had them in a long time. Delicious. I made a lot of food because we’re planning on eating leftovers for the next two days until Wednesday (my birthday!!!) when we leave for Denver.

HPIM3925Not exactly “Well-balanced,” but delicious nonetheless. I’ll have a fun wedding post up later. 🙂

  1. That’s a nice birthday dinner. Happy Birthday Brent!!!!

  2. Who cares if it’s well-balanced? Birthdays are a time for indulging!

    Happy birthday to you both!

  3. Aw, way to go making that dinner! Looks like it turned out great!


  4. I’m definitely not that great at frying either (or so I think). I don’t do it very often for health reasons so as a result I don’t feel like I have the built up skills.
