Happy Birthday To Me . . . HELP!??

Monday, October 27, 2008

My birthday is this Sunday.

Growing up, my mommy would would make me a lasagna. Later in life, it was a day that I could make whatever I want . . . whether my picky poops like it or not. This year, it's on a weekend, which means I have no time constraints. I truly can make whatever I want. I've got some ideas and I've created a poll to see what you all think. So, please, vote in my poll and I'll make it on Sunday.

Happy Birthday

Here's a list of options that I've considered:
  • Lasagna - I had one every year growing up, why fight tradition.
  • Indian Feast - I've got all the time in the world and the kids can have mac & cheese =)
  • Calzones - Everyone makes their own. Everyone's happy.
  • Tamales - I've never made them. I'm a chicken - bwak bwak.
  • Other - Please comment.
Again, vote early and vote often. Thanks.

  2. I'm Mexican so I'll have to go with Tamales. I remember it being a must on birthdays when I was younger.
    Happy Birthday..(In advanced)

  4. I vote Indian. But then you probably figured that. Just as long as I have time to make the cheezcake it's all good.

  5. I said Indian but Mexican food would be a tough decision to make. Make BOTH!!

  7. i think you should do a mini international thing. that would be fun, especially since you have the time. :)

  8. Well, being that my sweetie lives in New Mexico and I am not only smitten with HIM but with the food of that region: I vote tamales, because once you make them , you will wonder why the HECK you haven't before... One warning though - When I make them, TONS of them, my kids gobble them ALL up before they even hit the serving dish...

    Oh, and a little coconut oil works great instead of some of the solid shortening (LARD!) to give them a very nice authentic texture. I use 1/2 canola oil and 1/2 coconut oil, but do whatever recipe you have, they are actually pretty foolproof!

  10. I'm with Jeni and TofuFreak - make an international meal of it.

    ethiopian would be amazing too. though you should buy the injera from a restaurant because it's hard to make. best part is that injera is served cold, so you can get it a couple of days beforehand.

  12. PS. love the bday cupcake pic. that had to have set off the smoke alarm :)

  13. Matt Says:
  14. International? Hmm, I'll have to ponder that a bit.

    Tofu Mom - I don't actually have a tamale recipe. I've always intended to make tamales, but never get around to it. I expect the first time to be an ordeal. Thanks for the oil tip.

    Bethany - The cupcake was actually from a friend's party a couple weeks ago. It had 38 candles and ended up being mummified in wax. I will have 37 candles spread across a vegan pumpkin cheesecake.

    Oh, the antici . . .
