Today is my birthday! Yeah! I get to be the queen for a day. Where is my tiara? Anyone knows?
So my plans today are thus. I go to work in the morning. My company is taking us out around noon to see the new Harry Potter movie. We are going to the Alamo Drafthouse (AD) theater in Austin. AD is a restaurant cum movie place and once you see a movie there, you will never want to go any place else.
So anyways. Lunch and movie and then we get to go home.
My guys asked me what I wanted to do in the evening for dinner. I told them that I was tired of eating out and wanted a simple home cooked meal. I gave them a menu that they could make and I share it with you:
Slow cooked pot roast in red wine
Paula Deen's mashed potatoes
Paula Deen's creamed corn
Paula Deen's homemade biscuits
Paula Deen's squash casserole
Paula Deen's pea salad
Paula Deen's gravy
Being nice that I am, I told them not to bother making a Paula Deen cake because I wanted to keep it simple.
I get to be a queen today... right?
PS: For those of you who don't know Paula Deen, she is a famous cook on TV and I recently had the pleasure of eating at her restaurant. So I think I am obsessed with her now. Or at least her food.
PPS: This photo was taken in the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta. I have to say that it was the highlight of my trip.
