Living in the ass end of nowhere makes choosing where to have birthday food difficult. On a regular day picking a restaurant is agonizing. Bean burritos, again? Chinese, again? Or, oh wait, another veggie sandwich. Right on.
So for my birthday dinner I took a different approach, I made exactly what I wanted to eat: spinach pasta loaded with garlic, tomatoes, and olives; broiled asparagus; and roasted garlic bread (the latter not made by me). We had So Delicious Creamy Fudge popsicles for dessert. I was glad I got them, since while I was at the store JaneDog ate the chocolate chip cookies I made with Ben yesterday.
