Happy Birthday Dad!

Happy Birthday Dad!

It is so fun to get all dressed up and go to a fancy restaurant for a birthday dinner. But, I contend that it might be even more fun to host someone special at your home for a celebratory birthday dinner. At home you have no interruptions from waiters, you can make exactly what you all want for dinner, hang out with the puppies, you are on your own timetable, and there is no pricey bill at the end of the evening! It was my dad's birthday last weekend, and Bunker and I decided to host a birthday dinner for him at our house, nothing fancy, but certainly an evening filled with love, delightful conversation, and a delicious and healthy summer dinner.

Birthday Cake in the form of Cookies!

Our meal:
Raspberry Chipotle Seared Chicken breasts
Sweet Potato Gratin
Grilled Squash, Zucchini, Tomatoes, and Onions
Steamed Broccoli
Homemade Ciabatta bread with Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar for dipping
Chocolate Chunk Cookies for Birthday Cake!

Who can you treat to a healthy, fresh, casual and homemade dinner to this summer?
