Celebrations with Food

This past Friday was Jamie's 29th birthday! In true fashion, we ate our way through the weekend, while celebrating one of the greatest men I know. And definitely the handsome-est.

Exciting morning...happy birthday, J!
(Pretty sure I love birthdays more than he.)

First up, Lindsay's amazing Oat flour pancakes for bfast. I used her
Pineapple Upside Down Pancakes recipe, but I substituted bananas
(Jamie's favorite) for the pineapple. I had never baked with oat
flour before (or Greek yogurt), but they were amazing! And so
much better for you...don't know that I'll ever go back!

Next up: (later that night, of course!)
Jamie's favorite appetizer in the world.
Bistro Niko's mussels. Yum!

On to my mom's pecan crusted salmon recipe with
roasted brocolli, yukon gold mashed potatoes and
french bread - all at his request.

We capped off the weekend at Kyma with Jamie's
mom and sister. Yummy Greek, and they've
got fabulous $7 appetizers on Sunday nights.

Was a really great, exciting weekend, and I can't wait to tell you more about it! More pictures to come too, as we had a Saturday visit from the cutest nieces and nephew you've seen!
