The Matriarchs Birthday, The Goob Is A Year Older, But Getting Better!





Today is my wife's birthday... We spare a great deal of expense, but do not hold back on effort! Card- Guy in a cheap magicians outfit, with cheesey looking magic wand.. Front of card reads: "About the time a man figures out what a woman really wants"(open card!) "Most of the magic in his wand is gone"...
Present- She is into the "Twilight" books, 4th is out- that's what she wanted, and got!
Dinner of choice: Deep fried shrimp, with honey mustard sauce, and a red based hot sauce... Batter is something I am getting good at- Beer, Drake's, Lawry's Seasoned Salt, and black pepper-restaurant ground.. Ice cold, like Tempura- it is light and crisp! Seasoned Curly Fries- which were stupid good! And her cake..Remember the commercial where the two people run into each other, one eating chocolate- the other peanut butter? Now imagine a banana-walnut bread colliding with a carrot cake, topped with cream cheese spice frosting... It was to remember- it was that good! One large candle, instead of the correct number of them- Global warming is a real threat! She is pleased when she is spoiled occasionally- the beatings commence, and resume once again at dawn! Happy Birthday, darlin'....Conway Twitty..stupid name, ridiculous hairdo, I hate country music- but you did manage to get this one right...
Celebrate your small, happy moments with your loved ones, as there just isn't enough love going around...

Ah, happy B-Day to Mrs Buffalodick!
Isn't she just the luckiest to have you spoil her like that.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY - good lookin' grinds!

Scarlet said...

Happy Birthday to your lucky wife!

buffalodick said...

Char- I'm a load! But I do have a couple of pluses that keep me from the gallows! I would have shot me long ago, if I were that lovely woman!

buffalodick said...

DogB- Help! Foodbuzz is a mystery to me!
Scarlet- I will always treat her well, half out of love, the other from fear- as I have to sleep! As this is my wife's birthday, I can't tell you how great you look in the "nightshirt!"- but Wow!

buffalodick said...

DogB -You must meet the new model for my tee-shirt! Scarlet could make a flour sack look amazing! Lovely, intelligent woman, who I have come to admire- you must meet her..

Hit 40 said...

Happy Birthday!!

We do one candle per decade and round down :-)

The cake looks delicious. Fall cakes with spice are fabulous.

Dana said...

Happy Birthday to the Mrs!

And Buff? I's give my left testicle (if I had one) for a birthday gift so thoughtful!

blueviolet said...

Happy Birthday to your wife. That's a heck of a spread and she's very lucky!

G-Man said...

Hahahahaha...
Just another dinner at Maison d' Buff!

buffalodick said...

Hit40- It was moist/sweet/savory..really a winning combo!
Dana- I would wish that for you, sincerely..
BlueV- We don't deep fry often, but it sure is good when we do!
G-man- I think she is Bubba Gump- shrimp anyway you fix them, she'll eat them!

Marjie said...

Happy Birthday, Mrs. Buff! I sometimes wish my hubby could cook anything other than coffee and instant oatmeal!

buffalodick said...

Marjie- Instant oatmeal with coffee as the liquid... You might have the next new "fast food" breakfast craze!

pinknest said...

Aw, happy birthday to your wife! And this is my kind of birthday meal! Fried with fried, followed by cake!! Now you have me craving curly fries for breakfast.

The Good Cook said...

Lucky Woman. Lucky Man.

Congrats to you both!

Heff said...

Happy Birthday, Mrs. Dick !

You can't go wrong with shrimp !

buffalodick said...

Pink- After that last trip, you are indeed- The Pampered Chef!
T.G.C.- She puts up with a lot, and I try to make up for it... that's our deal! Thanks!

Kate said...

Fried everything would be what I'd want, too. Yummy!

buffalodick said...

Kate- It's rewarding kind of pain.. this morning in the bathroom, I thought I dined at Jiffy Lube last night!

buffalodick said...

Heff- She really was pleased.. they ought to give you a discount coupon for 20% off a stint with every deep fryer sold!

JihadGene said...

Banana walnut bread/carrot cake? WOW!!!

Jen said...

Happy Birthday to the Mrs!! :)

Rachel said...

Happy Birthday Mrs. B! I just finished the 4th Twilingt book and it is by far the best one! Be sure and tell her that.

Shrimp are my favorite food. I could eat them daily. And that cake? My GOD that sounds good.

Lawry's Seasoned Salt is a staple at our house. We use it when we grill corn with a little bit of garlic butter and some fresh lime juice. Divine!

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

A Very Happy Birthday to your wife! And my thanks for your visit to my blog!
I LOVE that T-Shirt you sent to Scarlet...Very Funny!

All I can think of with your name is that song...Buffalo Girl..only it becomes.."Buffalo Dick Won't You Come Out Tonight....etv., etc..." LOL!

The Blonde Duck said...

Happy birthday! What a lovely feast!

John McElveen said...

BD-

Now I'm not the brighest, smartest or most Einstienish person in the world...but correct me if I'm wrong.

Is there not a "food" theme going on here. I'm just picking up a slight pattern LOL!

AWESOME SHIRT and if you want to sell a million- Keep Scarlet modeling it!

Great post my man,

J

John McElveen said...

Oh gosh I'm sorry,

I'm sure like a Fine Wine, the Mrs. like mine is only going up in value in our minds and hearts! A sincere and blessed birthday Mrs. BD- may all your wishes come true!

J

Chris said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Ms. BD!

The shrimp sounds great.

buffalodick said...

Gene- had some more of it tonight- it is a keeper!
Thanks, Jen- she had a great day!
Rachel- She is at page 456.. haven't seen much of her face(stuck in a book!)and she agrees with you! When women are happy- I'm happy- less grief!
OOOTH- We have had a lot of laughs over the years with that logo! I'm getting older, but don't seem to ever grow up!
BlondeD- A nice day was had- and I think that's all one should ever hope for..
John- Scarlet made my shirt look like it had a worth! When I start selling them, I suppose she will get royalties!
Chris- Raw shrimp, deep fried in batter(tempura style) is hard to not enjoy!

Angela in Europe said...

Oh that comment about global warming was snarky! I hope you both enjoyed the day, the collision cake sounds heavenly.

buffalodick said...

Angela- If you can't handle ribbing, you wouldn't last a day here!
Wife on appearance: Once she complained her nose was too big. I insisted it wasn't- her face was just too small!
Wife Cooking: Hon, that is a smoke detector, not a food timer!
On age: "People at work don't think I look my age"... They haven't lived with you as long as I have- I'm the one who aged!

laughingwolf said...

yappy barfday! :O lol

as for twitty, not his real name... but memorable :P

buffalodick said...

Laughing Wolf- Welcome! I think half the country stars in Nashville were born in Jooisey!

snowelf said...

Hi UncleBuff!!

A very happy birthday to your wife! She picked a fabulous meal and that cake sounds delectible!
I think Conway Twitty's name is riduculous and I am not a country music fan either, but how adorable anyway. ;)

Best wishes!!

Beth said...

Happy BIrthday Mrs. Buff!!!!

and thanks for all your sage advice and kind words Uncle Buff....you're the best!
XOXOX

buffalodick said...

SnowNiece- I got a touch for what to do, and when... If I used this gift for evil purposes, I'd be a millionare!...My soon-to-be-famous quote: "My Ethics are impeccable, but my Morals need work"...Your unrepentant Adopted Uncle Buf...
Beth- It will all work out..time can really heal all wounds..and thank-you for those birthday wishes- she milked about three days out of it!

Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) said...

Awwwww! Happy (belated) birthday to your wife! :)

The food looks divine, and that cake sounds absolutely scrumptious! Will you be posting the recipe, perhaps? ;)

The card you gave her totally cracked me up! :)

buffalodick said...

Randy- (you know when you are into the people I care about, when I start shortening your name- it's a sign of affection, and acceptance to the real human race!) Humor and good eats is all we got here! You are always welcome, dear.. Thank-you, young Miss!

TavoLini said...

YUM--shrimp, fries and cake can't be beat! Happy Birthday Mrs. Buffalo :D

buffalodick said...

Tavolini- Haven't managed to wipe the smile off her face yet!

Bina said...

You are so sweet! And all that food looks good, but yes, that cake sounds to DIE for!!! Yummy!

LiLu said...

Oooo, I am so trying your recipe for battering! Delish.

Happy Birthday to Mrs. BD!

Akelamalu said...

Happy Birthday Mrs Buff!

Can I borrow Mr. Buff to cook for me for a while please? :)

buffalodick said...

Bina- Imagine dancing to that song with the one you love.. I know you will be swept away, and passion will replace reality- even only for just a moment..
Lilu- As I've said before, if only I were a younger man! Sounds like you have found your soul mate- good on you and him, both!
Ake- She would, except The Witness Protection Program forbids me from leaving America!

snowelf said...

UncleBuf--That is a fabulous quote. Stellar. :)

Stephanie Faris said...

Happy bday to her! My birthday is tomorrow and my boyfriend has been running all over town, trying to figure out what I wanted. So I left instructions with my mom to tell him a pair of nice earrings that I can wear all the time without having to take out every night. (Cheaper ones will infect your ears if you don't do that.) I guess the hint was taken but then my mom wanted to know what to get me so I told him a Bluetooth and he gave that hint to her. Of course, there's no guarantee that's what I'll get tomorrow!

buffalodick said...

Snow- When you move to St.Louis, you'll have to change your blog name to something warmer!
Steph- Mine's in a couple weeks, but Happy birthday to you!

Katherine Aucoin said...

Happy Birthday Mrs. Buff! Fried shrimp make the celebration all that much better!

Akelamalu said...

You're just making excuses Buff! ;)

buffalodick said...

Well, truth be told, I'm not in the Witness Protection Program- but I wish I was!

Odat said...

Many more happy days to Mrs. Buff!!!
The card made me laugh, the food made me hungry, the song made me cry.....
Peace

buffalodick said...

Odat- I really am that man. I wish you will find another, who loved you like your first husband- you deserve it. Now don't get all depressed on me.. I mean it, as you are good people..

Chef E said...

Jealous...lucky woman...as said before mine cannot cook, but thank goodness his fingers can dial the phone and make reservations, or I end up cooking my own meal...

buffalodick said...

Marmy- Cook naked? That's one sausage I won't be sauteeing anytime soon!
