Celebrating an August Birthday!

A homemade dinner, enjoyed under the pavilion in the herb gardens, with family and cake. What could be any better? 
Susanna and Angelica commandeered the kitchen one afternoon, and with chopping, slicing, sauteing and baking there was a complete healthy dinner and lots of happy dancing from the birthday girl. New recipes discovered on the Internet at Connoisseurus Veg provided the inspiration for a fabulous birthday dinner. The entree featured a delicious pasta dish that mixed spaghetti with roasted cauliflower and summer tomatoes topped with a hummus sauce and fresh from the garden basil. Yum!
Crispy black bean taquitos served with a pumpkin coconut dipping sauce rounded out the menu.  Also, yum!

And well, what's a birthday without cake. Susanna always manages to find a new bakery, and simply requests a tea themed cake. Every year there is always a beautiful cake.
Thank you to Angelica and Susanna for the surprise birthday dinner! Researching recipes, grocery shopping, cooking, all of it! Thanks to David for traveling to pick up the cake. And Cedar, our Wildcat football player was able to join in the festivities after practice. What fun!

Sounds like a wonderful birthday meal (that dipping sauce: yum!), and of course I am still swooning over your gorgeous turquoise teacup cake! Hope the next year is as lovely as this celebration was!
