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.


  1. Oh everything looks good. I will have to try that dip sometime!

    Not only are your cakes pretty, they are delicious! Wish I had a piece right now.☺

  2. Awww, that all looks awfully awesome! Sarah loves deviled eggs too and she also said "doubled eggs"! Thanks for sharing the birthday celebration with us.
