I want to thank everyone who wished me a happy birthday. I had a great weekend of celebrations and good food, especially Friday night when SP and I went out for sushi. Everything was so good we're already planning our next visit.
Tonight's dinner was a joint effort - SP made the pork chops with Dijon sauce and I made the mashed sweet potatoes and the skillet broccoli with creamy garlic sauce:
The sweet potatoes were Rachael Ray's recipe from 30-Minute Meal Get Togethers.
Here's a close-up shot of the broccoli just because, thanks to The Food Pornographer, I finally figured out how to take them:
The recipe for the skillet broccoli came from Lidia's Family Table. The creamy garlic sauce was a little too strong for SP so next time I think I'd only use one head of garlic instead of two.
