Birthday Celebration

Yesterday was a great family birthday celebration. We had three special birthdays in January, my husband was 60, my son was 30, and my daughter
-in-law celebrated her 29th.

I love to seek out special recipes for my guest. In this case, I wanted each birthday person to have a special dish. One of my favorite activities is to scour through magazines and the Internet and find great new recipes. I have a mile high stack of Tear Outs, that I will use someday. My husband feels I never make the same recipe twice, so for him I made my standby Prime Rib Roast!

My son loves Salmon, so for him I made a great new recipe. I have included the recipe .

My daughter-in-law loves breakfast casseroles, so I made her one of my favorites. I think it was a success because she took the leftovers home for dinner.

Lastly for me, I made a Roasted grape recipe and served it with some selected special cheeses. I continued my resolution to use more herbs by using this recipe, which I have included.

I hope you all enjoy this recipes as much as we did!!!!
