It is a birthday tradition in my family that on our birthday we get to choose what we want for dinner and dessert. (One year [in elementary school, I'll have you know] I requested Old Country Buffet [EWWW!]...That outing never happened...I wonder why?!
This year Blair requested Big Bowl's Kung Pao stir fry. I have blogged about it before - you can find the recipe here. Three huge batches and we had ourselves a feast!
This recipe is so great for entertaining because it is so easy to make a huge batch. AND it's always a crowd pleaser.
Poor Biggy (that is what we call Blair) had mono! Poor thing was so sick she could hardly enjoy the big feast!
She requested this for her cake:
Now I know what you are thinking, and YES! I did make the cake and decorated it myself!!!
Yeah...right. The cake was from Byerly's and so incredibly delicious. Blair goes to the zoo school - the School of Environmental Studies - which explains the zoo theme. Very cute.
And here is the beautiful birthday girl herself!
