Dad’s birthday!

This is a late post, but wanted to share my dad’s birthday celebration. His birthday was last month. We took him to Ruth’s Chris Steak House at the Restaurant Row location. I also had made chocolate pudding cupcakes to bring to the restaurant for dessert!

Let’s start with those cupcakes. My dad’s favorite- chocolate!

Pudding rocks!

Boxed cake mix is the way to go!

Yummy! Love the angle of this photo!

I first made the pudding and mixed some of it in the cake mix. Since my dad doesn’t care for frosting, I topped the cupcakes with the leftover chocolate pudding, and added some organic fruit gummies and fresh blueberries. Yum!

One of my favorite steak houses is Ruth’s Chris. We’ve been there multiple times for special occasions. The staff is very friendly and the ambience is just perfect! We always have a great time there!

My family and I had shared a Chilled Seafood Tower. That was so good! All that seafood- mmmm! Mouth is watering!

We also ordered an escargot to start off the birthday celebration dinner! It was delicious! I’ve never had escargot that wasn’t good.

I felt like having lamb chops that evening. Savory, I tell ya! I love their steaks, too- cooked at medium rare!

We shared a variety of sides: shoe string fries, roasted brussel sprouts, creamed spinach, and potatoes au gratin. Went perfect with our main dishes.

My dad enjoyed his dinner, and so did we! Everyone enjoyed the cupcakes. We had shared the rest with the manager and our servers. The manager greatly appreciated us sharing dessert with her. She was ecstatic! She didn’t know what to say! She hugged us and was excited to try them! She was the sweetest!
