Critter Spotter's Birthday Dinner

(Critter Spotter)
I asked Critter what he wanted for dinner on his birthday.  Keep in mind this just isn't any birthday, today my Critter turned a young 40 years old!  He is as handsome as ever and although I'll always love him no matter what, there is no doubt he does not look 40.  Here are pictures of the preparation of the requested birthday dinner, well ok, he just requested steak and left the rest up to me. 

(Good Morning Message to my Hunny)
I made up a cheesy potato recipe that turned out delish, steak marinated in his favorite marinade, sauteed green beans and mushrooms (and I can't stand mushrooms but he loves them) strawberry cheesecake (courtesy of Yokes) and sourdough bread with simple olive oil & basalmic vinegar dipping sauce. Without further ado... here are the pics of our yummy birthday dinner.  Oh yeah, and don't forget Critter and my favorite red wine, Red Diamond Merlot.  Tasty stuff!  Enjoy!
