Happy Birthday Dad!

Dear Dad, 

Today is your birthday.  It is a big one too. You know how I like to celebrate birthdays and it pains me that we are so very far away today.  

In order to honor you on this special day I decided to make one of your favorite meals.  A meal that apparently you were denied having for all 18 21 22 years of my living at home (maybe a few more, I heard the other child didn't like it much either). 

I hope you don't mind me making it now.  It was really more for Mr. J than me although I did try some.  To be honest I had every intent of using sweet potato tater tots only I couldn't find them in the store.  The cream of mushroom soup was organic. I am pretty sure Mom never used organic soup in her version.  Of all tater tot casseroles, this would be my casserole.  Next year though I might just stick to carrot cake. 

Cheers to you on this special day!  

Happy Birthday!

We love you.
