The reason why

I think we started celebrating Thatboy's birthday on Friday. There have been a series of fantastic meals and activities ever since then. There has also been a series of cigars and alcohol. I think the end of the celebration was tonight, when his office took off the afternoon for a trip to the bar. (Although the leftover ice cream cake, chocolate cake, and cupcakes means the celebration will really continue for another week at least).

I've been a good wife all weekend cooking up fantastic and elaborate birthday meals, but when you have to go out to pick up your drunk husband, he gets stuck with pub fare. The perfect drunk meal, it's a cross between Dennys and a bar. Ham and eggs on toast with cheese sauce, and Irish nachoes (cheesy potato slices).

Irish Nachoes
  • 1 potato, washed
  • canola oil
  • cheddar cheese, grated
  1. Preheat broiler. Slice potato into 1/4 inch slices and place on broiler pan.
  2. Brush each slice with canola oil. Broil for 4 minutes.
  3. Flip potatoes over, brush with canola oil, and broil for 4 minutes.
  4. Sprinkle potatoes with cheddar cheese and broil for 2 more minutes.
