Tanner's birthday was yesterday. I love planning a menu for my boys on their birthday. I try to make a little of everything they love (within reason). Tanner loves shrimp, and we got a good deal on a bag of shrimp at Sam's last week. I made shrimp alfredo. It was good, but the left overs were even better today!
I made him deviled eggs too. Of course, that was easy with the Easter holiday and 2 dozen hard boiled colored eggs in my fridge. Tanner used to think that deviled eggs were called "doubled eggs" and he always ate double helpings. What can I say, my kids are weird.
I also made him a jalapeno dip. Tanner LOVES jalapenos. The recipe for this is:
1 - 8 oz. package of cream cheese
1/2 cup mayo
1/2 cup Parmesan chees
3 oz. canned drained green chilis
3 oz. chopped, drained jalapenos
Mix all together and bake at 350 for 15 minutes. Serve with tortilla chips. Yummy!
And of course, I made my boy a cake. I regret now that I used so much gray, but I was being lazy and did not want to color more icing. I think he liked it anyway. It somewhat resembles his Mustang- or resembles as much as icing and my limited talents would allow.
