A couple days ago it was the huz’s birthday!
As might be expected from foodies like us, his big gift this year was food-related: a food dehydrator and jerky maker.
You might remember Valentine’s Day 2012, on which date I gifted a jerky bouquet to my man. He is a jerky lover. This year for his birthday, I gave him the chance to make it himself. And he actually did make beef jerky the very next day. It was really good! I’ve invited him to write a guest or collaborative post in the future about the procedure, so stayed tuned for more on the jerky machine and our food dehydrating adventures.
His birthday dinner was Metzger’s! They have a generous birthday deal and treat you well on your birthday. Highly recommended.
Tasty garden salad with Franziskaner Weissbier, a German beer, to start, for me.
Then we shared some chicken wings. We’re a big fan of Metzger’s spicy wings.
The man did his carnivore thang and ordered a big juicy New York Strip. Fourteen ounces. Plus a couple starchy sides – Potato Pancakes and Mashed Potatoes. Like carbs much?? Apparently vegetables are not necessary when you are a dude and it’s your birthday!
Stuffed Cabbage Rolls and Spatzen for me. Both were top notch and oh-so-comforting. Half was saved for a glorious lunch the following day, for the win.
Rich and creamy cheesecake with strawberries, complete with a birthday candle, for dessert!
The meal made the birthday boy happy.
And a happy wifey.
Happy Birthday huzzy!
