The real main event of my birthday party meal was, of course, the cake!
For the main dish of my birthday party dinner, I put together a simple pasta dish with pieces of chicken and a light lemon sauce.
In keeping with the Italian theme of my party, I started off dinner with a nice pot of stracciatella soup.
Another appetizer I had at my birthday party this year was a simple bruschetta with tomatoes and fresh basil.
One of the snack foods/appetizers I put together for my birthday party just over a week ago was a dip made with sun-dried tomatoes and feta cheese.
