Chris's Birthday!

Happy birthday to Chris!  We had so much fun last week and managed to celebrate his birthday all week long!  On his actual birthday we had a couple friends over for jambalaya.  It was really good if I do say so myself!  If you get a hankering, try this recipe.

In true Elie style, we decided last minute to make a trip to Cincinnati on Friday night to go see one of Chris's favorite comedians.  It was pure luck that Chris happened to be listening to the Bob and Tom show on the radio Friday morning and learned he was going to be there.  Chris has seen him before and loved him!  If you ever have the chance, Tommy Johnagin is a riot!  For the first time in a long time I laughed so hard my make up was smeared above and below my eyes!

Birthday fun continued the rest of the weekend.  This year I got him a smoker for our grill and a flying lesson.  We were supposed to go flying on Saturday afternoon but high winds took care of that.  We have rescheduled for next weekend so fingers crossed!

Saturday night we had more friends over!  Per Mr. Man's request, we had garbage plates for dinner.  For those of you who aren't familiar with this dish, it is native to Rochester, New York, which is where my husband is originally from.  It is not for the faint of heart, or stomach!  But it's one of his favorites so he was excited to introduce some of our friends to his beloved garbage plate!  Hopefully they enjoyed it as much as he did!
