I hope you've got a bunch of friends to share your birthday with. Otherwise someone is just out to ruin you.
Don't let anyone tell you that you can't combine foods you love to create a delicious chimera. For instance, one of the best burgers I've ever eaten had peanut butter, bacon and a fried egg on it. Sounds bizarre, tastes AMAZING. Also, it was the only thing I ate that day, talk about a calorie bomb!
Next time you are hosting a quilting bee (and I know it's soon! Don't lie!) you can present snacks on little appropriate stands made out of thread spools. Themed presentation of snacks is one of the little things that make get-togethers extra special.
