Birthday Dinner

Well, being in medical school means lots of tests...and they dont ask you when you want them! SO, even though today is my birthday, I have to study for my two remaining (of five) tests this week. However, I have some great friends and we had a dinner party last night. Here is my birthday dinner:

I forgot to take a picture of the wonderful angel food cake with strawberries that my roommate put together, but it was SO good! This plate includes poppy seed chicken (which I had been wanting and they didn't even know!), brown rice (yes, five-minutes because the guys didn't realize that brown rice takes 40 minutes to cook!), green beans with mushrooms, corn, and roll. The whole plate was prepared by some fantastic guys who I am so thankful for! No, the dinner wasn't specifically for my birthday but it fell at the right time...so I'm calling it my birthday dinner! Now back to pathology of...you don't want to know!

Happy Birthday Claire (albeit a day late). I hope that you'll get a day off sometime soon to relax and celebrate in a quiet non-exam kind of way. :-)

Erika said...

Oh. And poppyseed chicken? When you have a chance... :-)

Hope you had a great birthday! Bummer on the tests, but maybe you can really celebrate some this weekend. How sweet of your friends, and yumm-ooo on the poppy seed chicken! I haven't had that in so long and I love it too :)

Thanks, everyone, for the birthday wishes! I am FINIALLY finished with tests (at least for a few weeks) and have gone home for the weekend to see my parents. I'll check back in tomorrow to start posting some back-logged stuff! When I make the poppyseed chicken I will definitely be posting the recipe...it is SOOOO good!
