A dear friend had a birthday.
The dear friend had a gift of customizing a birthday dinner from blog entries.
The dear friend had other gifts along the way too.
Here's what the dinner ended up to be.
"I was going through the blog and was wondering if I can have something I never tried before and what I LOVE LOVE LOVE is Steak's Mom's Way"
"And that awesome Lebanese salad with the special spices that I absolutely adore (a.k.a. Fatoush)"
"And I'm not eating any dessert" (but a birthday dinner without dessert does not count - so a fruit salad was produced).
And I threw in some mezza and a fun birthday dinner was complete.
