Last weekend was my dad's birthday. Whenever we have a birthday in my family we usually make a special dinner for that person. Usually it's whatever that person wants, but in my dad's case its more like "do whatever you want," so that's exactly what I did. I was feeling inspired by the 50's so I thought why not make gourmet burgers, fries and milkshakes? I found a great butter burger recipe online that I thought would be perfect and I wanted to make the fries extra special too. I cut up a bag of potatoes and separated them into 3 trays. One was a garlic parmesan cheese (everyones favorite), the next was a rosemary, thyme and sage, and the last one was your everyday salt and pepper fries. Then I whipped up some vanilla and strawberry milkshakes the birthday boys favorite! Now since it was a 50's inspired birthday party and my dad is a huge dessert fan I was torn as to what cake I should make. I decided on his favorite pie...blueberry, it fit the theme and I got to tryout a new recipe. Everyone was fighting over the last piece so i guess it was a hit :-)
Happy Birthday Dad, I hope you enjoyed your 50's inspired Birthday party!
