Thank you everyone for the birthday wishes and happy birthday to your son @ChristinaM. This was my foodie friend.
My actual birthday is Monday the 24th but I am celebrating it over the weekend.

My husband recently decided to go off coffee and after I prepared him a milky mug of PG Tips, he was a convert. Unfortunately now, my 80-bag box doesn’t last us very long.

Continuing my birthday weekend, we enjoyed another sensational dinner at James on Main in Hackettstown, NJ. We enjoyed huge wood fired head on prawns, a Fred Flintstone sized short rib, crispy roasted pork belly, crispy duck leg confit and house sausage, tempura battered black bass, beet salad, a side order of crispy hand cut fries, and an excellent amuse bouche of spring pea vichyssoise with pea tendrils, and pickled pink strawberries. It all went great with an excellent cabernet.

Made an Asian peanut “sauce” for some fresh egg noodles we had leftover, and prepped a bunch of veggies - stir-fried, raw, and pickled - sauteed a little marinated pork shoulder, and served all of it over the noodz. “Sauce” never got loose enough so i used some of the noodle water, which made it creamier than i wanted. Still tasty, and I used up a lot of TPST of veg that was in our fridge.

For a late dinner, some pernil style pork shoulder, with arroz con gandules. I couldn’t find skin on pork shoulder at a small enough size so I used skinless and topped it with some pork skin I had in the freezer.

Last night we made skirt steak fajitas grilled over the campfire, with zucchini and spinach salad - neither of which I had room for after a big lunch. Birthday cupcakes after (sorry for the scribble but I like to protect the kiddo’s privacy online til he’s old enough to decide).
