Home Cooking: Terry's Birthday Dinner

Terry's birthday was a week or so ago, but instead of going out, he wanted me to make him dinner. We trolled Findlay Market for fresh veggies, and ended up with a mishmash of his favorite foods. I got some Amish chicken from Luken's (whose $5 for 5 pounds of chicken leg-and-thigh quarters can't be beat; Terry likes dark meat anyway), some fresh corn, zucchini and tomatoes and I threw together a salad. Very simple, but tasty-- it tasted like summer.

Terry's birthday dinner

Mmm. Fresh tomatoes.


Terry's Birthday Cake-- bonbonerie


I firmly believe that everyone should have cake for their birthday. This cake is the Opera Cream cake from The Bonbonerie. He loved it!

That looks yummy! I almost sent you a message the other day...eggplants are $1 at Biggs. I bought one and roasted it like I do all veggies and it turned out great! Any other suggestions? We need a local forum I guess! Sorry to go off on a tangent.

Ratatouille? Eggplant parm? Baba ghanoush!

mmm...my husband and i both love the opera cream torte. i made him order it once at dewey's very early in our relationship and he fell in love. we had it as our wedding cake...it may be why he married me ;)

total side note - the top layer held up to freezing very well and was still delectable on our first anniversary.
