summer birthday grill

My mom's been kind of mad at me since I publicly said that Terry taught me how to cook. So, I want to take this opportunity (on her 29th birthday!) to say thank you, I love you and you're the best mom.

On Sunday night, we celebrated my mom's special day in 36c heat! Yikes! It was so hot, we almost didn't feel like eating. But, of course, we did.

  • Guacamole & Pita Chips...that's five avocados split among three people
  • Bonnie Stern's grilled salmon and corn salsa (this meal took less than 30 minutes including prep and active cooking)
  • Store-bought but still delicious key lime pie

Happy birthday mom!


  1. Thank you for the most delicious and the very best birthday meal ever.
    I am so lucky that you love cooking, and using ALL the cookbooks that I gave you.
    I am so lucky to have you to celebrate with.

  2. Mom,

    You have not have taught me how to slice an onion but you did teach me how to make our favourite food...CHICKEN WINGS!

    I love you too.

    Come back soon.

  3. It looks so nice and crunchy! I can imagine it would contrast very well with the salsa. Happy birthday to your Mum!
