Tuesday Happenings

I cannot begin to thank all of you for stopping by and leaving birthday greetings, but I sure as heck am gonna try:

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!
My daughter took us all out to eat Sunday afternoon, so in honor of Sarge Charlie and his
"Meat and Three," I present to you the following:


Grilled Salmon

Shrimp stuffed with Crab

For Miss Bee, a delectible chocolate cake with raspberry sauce


And the piece de resistance, caramel pecan cheesecake!

For my birthday today (yesterday since I'm having a night owl attack!), I fixed fresh green beans with bacon, my special potato salad (red potatoes, eggs, chives and bacon) and country-style pork spareribs. The green beans and spareribs simmered slowly most of the afternoon and were absolutely worth the wait (if I do say so myself!).

I remember many an afternoon sitting with my grandmother "snapping" green beans. She came to California in a covered wagon and I sat and watched the first moon landing with her! Can you imagine? I wonder where I'll be at the next decade marker.

Oh you've made me feel hungry and it's not lunch time yet. Glad your birthday went well. I remember shelling peas with my Great Aunt when I was a child.

MMMM! Sounds yummy...

Sarge Charlie said...

Well now young lady, let me see, where will you be......... by the time you are 70 I predict..........

People will live on the moon.

You will look just a wonderful as you do today.

You will be healthy, that is the most important.

The global war on Radical Islam will be in its 15th year.

Sorry for the last one but I am a realist and that is what I believe.

Thanks for sharing your Meat and Three........

I left birthday greetings for you all over the blogosphere, but I'm not sure if I ever left them here!

I hope you had a wonderful birthday. Remember, age is only a number. True age is a state of mind!

It all looks so wonderful. Yummy. I'm glad you had a nice birthday. We were all thinking of you. Have a great day Gracie. I'm going to the kichen now to see if I can find something good to eat. I'm hungry now. :)

Linda said...

Okay, now I am really, really hungry for some good food and that pecan caramel cheesecake? Drrrooooolllll...

Now that you've gotten past the hurdle of actually turning 60 it feels better right? Kind of like going to the doctor for a dreaded shot - the anticipation is worse than the actual happening!
