Birthday Dinner? Dinners???

Original plan was for Crab Au Gratin, Salad and Apple Brown Betty...Salad with my Bleu Cheese Dressing is the only part of the Original Plan that has happened so far! :)

Friday night...the actual night was Baked Spaghetti & Next Best Thing to Robert Redford Pie...

Yesterday, still no Crab for the Au Gratin and desserts still on,

Filet Mignon, Salad and Corn on the Cob! YUMMY! According to Rick, "PERFECTION!"

Well, another day has passed and still no Crab Au Gratin! :)
