Birthday Giveaway '10

It is that time again: time for my birthday giveaway. I love that my birthday giveaway has become a minor tradition. For my last 3 birthdays (2007, 2008, 2009), I have been happy to celebrate by doing a giveaway on my blog. And this year is no exception to that trend.


This year to participate, leave a comment on this post with your favorite birthday meal. If you could pick anything, what would you want? Make sure I have a way of getting back to you if you win! This year, our 3 winners will respectively receive a double pointed needle case from Baguettes by BBL, a skein of Calzino Color sock yarn in colorway 0366 (yes, poetic I know), and the lastest issue of Crochet! (the July 2010 edition). You have until the end of the month, Eastern Standard Time to join in.

Haha...I messed up. :( They should let you edit your comments on Blogger!

Wow! It's your birthday and you give away things? How awesome are you?!!? I'm so entering! :)

I have a birthday coming up in the semi-near future, and lately I've been craving Spanish food. I think if I could conjure it here from Spain, I'd have an amazing paella mixta (that's light on seafood because I'm not overly fond of it) and a Tortilla espanola. And some Sangria.

Yum. Now I might have to just make myself some of that. It never comes out the same though.

So anyone who reads this can see, here's paella:

and a Spanish tortilla:

(and, my mistake was, I'm Dreamy Jamie! or, you know, suenosdejmi on Ravelry. :D )

For my birthday this year I had...well, wine, mostly. Seriously, I started off with good intentions, but then the guys who were helping me move made me play beer pong with them, but I don't drink beer, so it turned into Wine Pong, and then I know I ate something later in the day, because I went out to dinner with my friend Jennie and her fiance, but...I don't have any recollection of what that might have been. Nachos? Actually, nachos are a great birthday food, because they are endlessly shareable.

Such a tough question! My favorite birthday dinner would have to be my dad's (not so) famous chicken and cheesy pasta, with his chocolate and butterscotch chip cookies for dessert! I usually miss home around my birthday, so I always crave dad's cookin'!

My favorite birthday meal has to be home cooked traditional meal - rice, roti and a spicy curry. End the meal with home baked cake and a dollop of ice cream. Yum! My birthday is like ages away. Sigh.

Any type of vegies - Asparagus or Artichoke are especially good

Spaghetti and meatballs! No, really. It's even better if there's garlic bread, a nice green salad, and something tiramisu-like for dessert, but really the most important part is spaghetti and meatballs. Yum.

Cheesecake starting with breakfast, but dinner has to be a huge slab of roast beef over potatoes, carrots and mushrooms. Then more cheesecake :)

I can't just pick one meal... my best birthday has to have an awesome breakfast and dinner.
My best bd breakfast is yogurt with cereal and mangos and peaches. Yum! (okay, I know that sounds boring... but I'm a sucker for fresh fruit)
And my favorite birthday dinner is roast lamb. I'm not particular about side dishes :)

Happy Birthday one day late.
Hmmm...if I could have any birthday meal it would be mussels gathered on the beach on the Island eaten sitting on a driftwood log looking at the ocean with a seaweed salad on the side. Of course, on my actual midwinter birthday that would be rather frosty.
I hope you had a great day.

It would have to be followed by a heaping pile of my cholesterol pills but... I'd like a Triple Bacon Cheeseburger, with lots of onions and mushrooms sauted in butter, and extra mayo. a side of Mom's Mac & Cheese with with Chopped Ham, some Deviled Peppeoni Eggs, and a Chocolate Shake. It's been years since I've had any of these things! Can I have a Linguica pizza too? Thanks!

Meanwhile, Happy Birthday to you, and thanks for the giveaway.

For my birthday, I like beer. For food, I usually end up with Thai (pad thai or curry) or the local Celtic pub (best stews and cornbeef in town).
