Today is my birthday and I took the day off from work. My parents came to visit me today. They arrived in time for lunch and I made this for us. The flowers are birthday flowers from my parents.
- Beet & Goat Cheese Tarts – I used golden beets (from CSA).
- Spinach and Raspberry Salad – I made a simple vinaigrette of olive oil, white wine vinegar, dijon, and maple syrup.
- Peanut Butter Dessert – I made this for Easter. This time I did not make a crust, shaped some melted chocolate, and added a peanut butter sauce.
My critique of the meal: This easy meal looked impressive and was delicious. All 3 of us enjoyed this meal. My Dad joked that the chocolate looked so good he thought it was plastic but he knew I would not serve something non-edible. The only thing I would change about this meal is the vinaigrette. I did not measure and my splash of vinegar was too much.
Happy Birthday! I hope you had an enjoyable day.
