We decided to do the traditional thing, and ask my daughter what she wanted for her birthday dinner. "Spaghetti?" we asked. "Pork chops? Sloppy joes?"
She decided we should have what we call "boiled dinner." Boiled dinner is something we do when we are in a hurry or don't really want to cook, and it is just what it sounds like: boiled potatoes, carrots, cabbage, and kielbasa. Frost really likes boiled cabbage, the little freak. She often chokes down the carrots, potatoes, and sausage so that she can have second and third helpings of boiled cabbage.
Her choice was vetoed, and we're having a casserole. Kids these days. Sheesh.
