Tasty Tuesday: Celebrations in the OutbackJanuary 20, 2015
Twenty-one years ago today, my mom was in the hospital on her birthday after giving birth to her second child, my sister. It's a wonder they didn't end up sharing their day. To celebrate, 9 of us went to dinner at Outback Steakhouse last night.
Honestly, it's been ages since I've been to Outback Steakhouse. I'm not a steak person so we tend to shy away from places like that. However I have to say I was more than impressed with our meal, and going back is definitely in our future.
No trip to Outback Steakhouse can be complete without a Bloomin' Onion. My dad ordered cheese fries and everyone pretty much shared.
As I mentioned before, I'm not really a meat person. Hamburg is pretty much it and even that upsets my stomach. Oh the perks of aging. Instead, I opted for the Blackened Fish tacos with lime ailoi with a side of steamed broccoli for Penny.

This is just a very small group of the huge family Joshua, Penelope, and I share. We are so incredibly blessed beyond words. Not a day goes by that I'm not thankful for each and every one of them. Remember to hold your loved ones close.
Happy Birthday Mom! Thank you for transforming me into the best version of myself.
