It is my birthday this weekend. @mrsbozz and I had planned on going out to eat tonight to celebrate, but she is currently feeling under the weather. This is her second day in a row staying home from work and it's a good thing tomorrow is Saturday because if it were a weekday she would probably be missing that one too.
She asked me a while ago where I wanted to go out to eat for my birthday and quite honestly nothing has sounded that great. I thought about Italian, but the chain restaurant near us can be hit or miss sometimes. I also thought about another place that has some killer chicken fingers:
They batter them in a beer batter made from the golden ale of a craft brewery in our state. They then serve them with a spicy honey dipping sauce and homemade potato chips and french onion dip. It is pretty much the only thing I get at that restaurant anymore. Just because they are so good, not because the other food is bad.
@mrsbozz had suggested that maybe I should stop at one of our other favorite places on my way home to get some takeout. She plans on having soup tonight, so she thought at least one of us should have something special.
She actually just called to check in with me and let me know how she is doing. I have to stop at our local fruit/meat/convenience market on my way home from work to grab some things for her, so I think it is more likely I will just grab a steak from there and take it home to grill it.
I am thinking a nice New York Strip or Porterhouse with some grilled brussel sprouts, and maybe some ice cream for dessert (for @mrsbozz's sore throat of course).
So here is my challenge for you, what is your favorite birthday meal? When I lived with my parents I would always have my mom cook/grill baby back ribs. When I was younger my grandma would always make me a huge cake with as much frosting as she could possibly fit on it. As I got older I was more than happy with a good old Texas Sheet Cake.
Is there a special place you like to go out to eat for your birthday? What do you order there? Do you or does someone you love fix you something special at home. Give me all the details! I want the full five course rundown!

All pictures were taken by me except the steak one, that is from pixabay, though I should have my own steak picture by 6:00 PM tonight!
