Birthday dinner fit for a King

Tonight was Alex's 12th birthday and as is our family tradition the Birthday Boy (or Girl) gets to pick their birthday meal.Alex didn't disappoint with his selection and I have a feeling it may become a yearly tradition!

Beef loin steaks grilled medium rare over a mesquite smoking box for an unforgettable party on the taste buds! And despite being twelve he requested vegetables for his sides which were homemade mashed potatoes and steamed sugar snap peas. For desert  he requested cheese cake as his birthday cake which of course made me happy!

The most exciting aspect of this meal is that we are having his birthday celebration with the rest of our family on Sunday so I will have another amazing meal to blog about and it's a totally different selection of food!
Happy Birthday Alex, I love you!

Happy Birthday, Alex! It's clear that we are cousins. I would have chosen this meal!

I suppose since you told me you don't believe in Santa Claus, the Birthday Fairy is out too :-)
Good choice in cake. :-)
