Tim’s Birthday Weekend

Last weekend was my hubs birthday. We celebrate birthdays the entire weekend, because that is what I want on my birthday, so that’s what we do for his birthday. Although the entire weekend he kept saying, “you don’t have to celebrate my birthday the whole weekend.” But since he treats me like a total princess, what the heck, I’ll give you a weekend. Oh the sacrifices you make when you are married…

We started off Friday with his band practice and afterwards bike club. Our friends bring their bikes and we ride somewhere around town and grab some grub. One of our favorite spots is Love Shack Burgers in Fort Worth. The night didn’t get real crazy til the monkey piñata came out. You would have thought there was crack in the candy the way we all ran for it…

The next morning we hit our favorite breakfast spot, Ol’ South Pancake House. It’s a crappy diner but they have some amazing food. Tim and I have been known to hit it at 2am, but that’s neither here nor there. If you go, you have to try The Original German Pancake.  It’s probably not original, but dang it is amazing.  Especially if you love lemon.

For part of Tim’s birthday present, he got part of his tattoo sleeve done. See picture below.

That evening my parents took Tim and I to our favorite Indian restaurant. Can you tell we are total foodies? The rest of the evening was spent seeking out dessert.

Since we had friends over on Saturday morning, Sunday morning we spent at the house and I made Tim a lil’ birthday breakfast. This is where it gets good.

Hatch Green Chile Cheddar Biscuits

          

I was totally going to half ass (in comparison with whole ass) this recipe and grabbed my Bisquick biscuit mix but It had weebles in it… Super mad.

So I made some biscuits from scratch.  Again the sacrifices you make when you married.

Here is the recipe:

Ingredients:

1 Hatch Chile

8 oz Cheddar Cheese

3 cups AP flour

1 t. baking powder

1 TB sugar

1 t. salt

3/4 t. cream of tartar

3/4 c. of butter

1 -1/4 c. of milk

[typography font=”Lobster” size=”15″ size_format=”px”Blister one green hatch chile.  We did it in the broiler. Drop in a ice bath and peel the skins.  Chop up into small pieces. Chop cheddar cheese into small squares, smaller than a dime.

Preheat oven to 450 F. Combine flour, baking powder, sugar, salt and cream of tartar.  Using the dough hook on your mixer, cut in the butter until mixture is combines, it will be in crumbs.  Make a well in center of course crumb mixture and add milk all at once.  Combine until mixture is moistened.  Add in hatch chiles and cheddar.  Drop spoonfuls of dough mixture onto a well greased cookie sheet.  Makes 12 large delicious biscuits.  Bake for 10-12 minutes or a slight golden brown on top.
