Today I is my dad's birthday. I feel like a complete shit because I have a card that I have been meaning to drop in the mail all week, but for some reason, I keep forgetting. So, sorry dad - your card will be late - I figured sending him a blog-style birthday card would be the next best thing!
Happy birthday, dad - As always, I wish I could be there to celebrate with you - but know you are in my thoughts and always close to my heart. I know being my dad has not always been easy, (I won't bring up all those pesky teenage years) but thank you for always being there for me. Thank you for the encouragement you have given me throughout my life. Thank you for letting me cry on your shoulder. But most of all.. thank you for the love you give freely... it as helped make me the person I am.
Wishing you the best today and everyday - I love you, dad!!!! Happy Birthday!!! xoxoxo

And, of course, there is still Fire Day Friday, where I'm highlighting a favorite of mine - I've posted it here before - but - it's one of those "oldie but a goodie" recipe!
Oh.. and sorry for the lack of recipes lately.. starting Monday, I should be back to my normal routine.. or at least close to it :) Enjoy your weekend and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
