Foodie Fridays – Family Traditions

This past week our daughter had a birthday.

We celebrate in our family in two ways—you get to pick the meal and you get to pick the pie. We have always had birthday pies in lieu of cake because I’m better baking pies than cakes. 😉

That is until our daughter-in-love joined the family; she is an amazing cake creator. I say creator instead of baker because she creates masterpieces. Click here to see.

Back to this week’s BD celebration…

Heather wanted a crab and shrimp boil. I was so excited to make this because nothing welcomes summer like a good ol’ seafood feast.

Her pie choice was key lime. I didn’t bake it though, because Publix makes a delicious one. In addition, her husband can’t have dairy so I baked an apple pie for him.

All in all it was a great celebration. I just wish the rest of the family could gather together as we did in years past. Elias misses his cousins…

Happy Birthday Heather. You make 37 look great.

How does your family celebrate birthdays?
