As promised, here is Mr. How Sweet’s belated birthday dinner!

I’m sure it’s not hard to figure out what he wanted… steak, chicken, and a side of… steak. But I made some minor adjustments after a few glasses of this:


And ended up with this:

Whipped sweet potatoes.



Roasted green beans.

These were incredible. They almost tasted like… french fries?!


His and hers filets.

Bet you can’t guess which one is mine.


A delicious birthday dinner.



Made even better by some of this:

Mr. How Sweet is trying to sneak a second bowl right now and doesn’t think I can see or hear him. It’s pretty entertaining.

      Nope – just olive oil, salt and pepper!

    I’ve been dreaming about whipped sweet potatoes. I saw Nigella make a whipped sweet potato and regular potato mash the other day and I can’t get it out of my head. This is a sign. I need to make these STAT.

    Happy bday (belated) Mr. How Sweet!

    Love the last bowl that the ice cream is in. So pretty. Earthenware. I love pottery of all kinds.

    Anyway Mr Sweet clearly had a faboosh bday! He’s one lucky guy having you wait on him hand and foot and cook for him. You can hold it over his head for a long time :)

    Mr. How Sweet is a very lucky man! I laughed when I saw the two beef filets- that’s what my and my husbands portions look like when I make steak! It must be a guy thing! :-)

    Yum, yum, yum, yum. It all looks SO good.

    The cuts of meat made me laugh…generally what my boyfriend’s and my plate look like. Or, sometimes we START with equal sized pieces and I just let him eat half of mine.

    The green beans sound wonderful. I am really loving green beans these days, especially from the farmer’s market.
