Curtis' Birthday Dinner

At our house a birthday person gets to pick whatever he wants for dinner, and--as the newest member of our family--Curtis made the most of his debut selections.
The table.
The menu: Lamb Tikka Marsala, Vegetables in Saffron Cream Sauce, Basmati Rice, Garlic Naan, and Mango Lasee!
We'd never made any of these dishes before, so it was quite an adventure in the kitchen. Everyone pitched in and, wow, was it ever yummy!
For dessert, Curtis by-passed a traditional cake for banana splits with a Hawaiian twist.
We started with bananas, of course. Then three flavors of ice cream: coffee, chocolate, and pineapple coconut.
Next we drizzled hot fudge sauce . . .
Added freshly whipped cream . . .
Sprinkled chopped pecans . . .
And crowned the masterpiece with a maraschino cherry.
Curtis got a candle, too.
Happy Birthday, Curtis! And thanks for expanding our culinary horizons. We love you.

That food looks better than the pottery, in my eye! I love Indian and Hawaiian!

Keep 'em coming!

And thanks, Jeanne.
