It's hard getting older, especially if you hail from Generation X, but making a rich, indulgent GF meal from scratch followed by a decadent GF French birthday cake always takes the edge off the aging process and makes turning the page on another year a little less painful. In addition to pulling some strings to get my musicophile hubby on the guest list (plus one of course) to see the genius rock band Wilco (I went to art school with someone who's married to someone in the band yo) when they rolled through our small town midweek stopping briefly to play in our lovely little deco gem of a theatre, the Cascade, I made him this yummy meal...as expected the show kicked ass (it is Wilco we are talking about after all), so did the dinner...it was a night to remember...whatever...
so here's what was on the menu...
French pot roast with local Prather Ranch beef
GF chocolate mousse cake...you can throw in a handful of raspberries if you want to jazz this up a bit...
