Today is my husband's 44th Birthday and he picked the recipe for our Tuesday Night Dinner across the miles dish tonight.
(Tuesday Night dinners started some time back with my friend Jolie who now lives in NC, we use to cook together once a week when she lived here in Florida, ..now that Jolie is in NC we decided to continue the tradition but with a twist, we still cook together but now we post our dinners and recipes on our blogs) Dinner was great! I have not made this recipe is such a long time, it is a recipe that my mom use to make and it was a family hit, now.. it is a bit higher in calories then what we usually cook but since my husband picked it for his Birthday dish it was a must and it really was a nice treat :) My husband received fruit flowers from his mom today so I used some of the fruit on top of our salad as a side dish with our dinner and it was lovely and yummy. Happy Birthday Honey!
Jolie made her dish from the clean eating recipe she found for the same dish, you can click hereto see her lovely dinner.
