Today! Today today today! Today is a great day!!
Why, you ask?
Because it is Michael's birthday! The day he was born!
26 years ago today my soulmate was born...then he had to wait around for 3 years before I was born. :P
Then of course, he had to wait around until he was a senior in high school to meet me (when I was just a wee little freshman), and as far as he knew, I was just another annoying little freshman in choir and drama with him. It was not until he was almost 23 that we finally had all the weird set of circumstances that led us together. It was worth the wait :).
Michael's not a fan of having people make a big deal over birthdays, etc. for him, so (against his will, I might add) all I'm doing is making him a BIG dinner tonight! We're having homemade tortilla chips with salsa (for him) and homemade guacamole (for me), chicken enchiladas with a scallion sauce (since I don't normally cook Mexican for him), and he will be having mini raspberry cheesecakes for dessert! I really hope he likes everything, and I am so happy that I get to spend time with him today. I love him very much :).
I thought, as another way to celebrate, I would share with you all some of Michael's favorite recipes that I've posted on the blog. Michael likes pretty much everything I make, but there are some recipes that particularly get my boy's tumbly rumblin! Some of these, in fact, are things that I don't even like, things I made specifically and only for my very Michael. This is still but a small sampling, but I hope you'll enjoy looking at a few of the birthday boy's favorite recipes:
