My mom is super sick so my son’s birthday party is postponed. We will have the party on Friday. In addition to my Chinese BBQ ribs I’m going to make Eggplant With Garlic Sauce and Asian Carryout Noodles and Citrus Veggie Stir-fry . They all sound good to me and I have almost everything I need to make them. Hope they work out!
So for my birthday I made the crock pot BBQ chili, not bad I think. It was a little sweet but if I had used my home made BBQ sauce instead of bottled it would have been more smokey, less sweet.
My son’s birthday is this week and I’m trying to plan a menu (I know, talk about waiting until the last minute) but since it’s only going to be 5 of us, all family, I’m not wanting to go overboard.
I have decided on serving Chinese pork ribs (I’ll post the recipe in a day or two) but I’m having problems deciding what else to serve with it. Maybe a noodle or rice dish and there has to be some veggies but other than that I have no clue. Anyone have any good Asian side dish recipes?
Usually for our birthdays I make something special. This year not so much. For my husband’s birthday we didn’t do anything since he was at a concert with his brother. My sister’s birthday we had a party but it was at a friend’s house and they cooked. Other than icing the cake (and as a cake decorator I’m expected to) I didn’t do anything. Ok, I made a side dish (I will post it, I promise) but it wasn’t much. For my birthday last year I made my Super Salmon and I made it again for our anniversary. This year I have to work so I think I won’t be doing much more than making a crock pot of Slow Cooker BBQ Chili and calling it good.
However next week is my son’s second birthday and while I will be making a cake, at work, my kitchen is almost too small to do it at home, especially with a toddler wanting to “help”, I’m not sure I will make something special for dinner. Maybe, maybe not.
