Birthday bash

Sometimes I get the urge to cook an extravaganza. I'm always happy when it lines up with someone's birthday- because then I'm honestly grateful that I get the excuse to cook for a couple hours uninterrupted for someone I love. Last night's meal was no exception: 

Maryland crabbies: with spicy mayo and smoked paprika tartar
Fried green tomatoes: with garlic scape ranch 
Olive oil poached gulf shrimp: the texture on these was incredibly sexy
Michigan garden flatbreads (rubbed with kale pesto topped with charred corn salad and homegrown sweet pea sprouts) 

These sprouts gave their life for you Buns!

Passion fruit key lime bars were the sweet course, but it looks like theygot eaten before they were photo-ed.
