A week ago today we celebrated my dad's birthday.
It's been so crazy since then that I haven't had a chance to post about it yet.
It was a crazy week and of course my sister and I were busy getting ready to go out of town. But birthdays are big in our house. We always have a big family dinner, usually on a Sunday night so the grandparents can come. Since last year, we decided to celebrate on the actual day. I mean, why the heck not?!
Anyway, we're Italian and any chance we get to eat Italian food, we do.
So of course, for my dad's birthday dinner he wanted a pasta dish. Unfortunately I didn't actually get a picture of the pasta cause it was so yummy and we ate it all too fast.....ooops!
The menu looked a little something like this -
- Wedge Salad with blue cheese & balsamic drizzle
- Rigatoni with Artichoke Tomato Sauce
- Sherbet Cake (recipe below)
The food was delicious.
The conversation was fun.
The gifts were opened.
(of course we didn't get any pics of us....shame on me)
Overall I think he had a pretty good day :)
(we kind of got halfway through before realizing to take a picture....so sorry it looks a little torn up- ha)
