Happy Birthday to My Studly!

Today is Michael's 28th birthday *trumpets sounding*! Being the neglectful (read "pregnant and absent-minded") wife that I am, I had planned out our 6 week menu without thoughtfully considering Mike's birthday dinner. A few days ago, he looked at the menu and said "Oh, we're having mini-meatloaves for my birthday?", and I said something like "Um, yeah". Yesterday I realized I could be flexible so I texted and asked what he'd like for his birthday dinner and dessert if he could have ANYTHING. He was very specific in what he asked for:

Herb-Glazed Pork Roast (I normally make this for Easter dinner)
Homemade Stuffing (his mama's recipe)
Pavlova (a Russian meringue)

I think this menu was meant-to-be! I had all but 4 ingredients on hand and had even just gotten my Food Network magazine (thanks Dane!) with a great pavlova recipe in it. I did most of the prep-work last night, but I better go get the pork roasting :)


  1. A great pavlova indeed! Everytime I open the fridge, no matter what I actually need, I take a bite of it! Haha! Thanks for sharing! =)

  2. Ooo! That sounds so good! What a good wifey you are. :-)

    (I'd love to have your pork roast recipe! :-D)

  3. pavlova is the most amazing thing ever. Oh man, Judy made it a few weeks ago and I am still dreaming about it.

  4. And yet again - I'm impressed! That meal sounds exquisite. Jody would be lucky to get a birthday dinner that wasn't burnt! :)
