Happy Birthday Dad!

There are at least 2 personality traits I’ve inherited from my dad… love of a clean house, & love of super-sugary birthday cake frosting.

I mentioned in yesterday’s post that this weekend was special not only because of Chris’s birthday, but also because today was my dad’s 60th birthday.

My family & I went to a local restaurant – the Kutztown Tavern – for lunch & had a difficult time deciding on what to order; there were a lot of options that I wanted to try!

We started with an appetizer (I was so hungry!) & we went with the buffalo egg rollshomemade egg rolls stuffed with buffalo chicken & cheddar jack cheese, served with Bleu cheese dressing.

These were awesome! I only had one, but could definitely have had more. Several of us agreed that we could make a meal out of these little bites.

For my entree, I ordered the flat iron steak ciabattathinly sliced seasoned certified angus beef, spinach, roasted red peppers, Bleu cheese crumbles, & roasted red pepper mayo. I also “upgraded” to the sweet potato fries which was a good decision!

After lunch, we headed back to my parents’ house for cake & ice cream. I started digging in when my dad reminded me I needed a picture. :-)

If you follow me on Instagram (elukes25), then you already know about the yard signs my dad got for his landmark birthday! We took a father/daughter picture with them, since they’ll be taken down tomorrow.

And yes, there really were 60 cows in the yard!

My dad had been looking forward to this birthday for a while, & it seems like he enjoyed the celebration!

Afterwards, I came home & napped for a few hours! All of the birthday fun this weekend is exhausting, apparently. Now, I’m getting ready to pick at some leftovers & settle in for the newest episode of Big Brother.

Which do you prefer – sugary frosting or whipped frosting? This isn’t even a question for me… sugary all the way.

      Chris’s birthday cake was actually a mix of the sugary & whipped icing!

      The ice cream is Turkey Hill brand birthday cake ice cream!

      I hadn’t been there in about 2 years, but it was fantastic. There were seriously so many things on the menu that we all wanted to try! Definitely try the buffalo chicken eggrolls if you go!
