Happy Birthday to the #boywholived !! Today #HarryPotter turns the big 4-0! Crazy, right?? To celebrate him and the magic of his world, tonight’s menu is a comforting Beef Stew with Herb Dumplings, and Harry’s very first birthday cake!! Open at the Close, am I right?
First up is the Beef Stew with Herbed Dumplings, courtesy of “Unofficial Harry Potter Cookbook”. Author Dinah Bucholz took a passing line of Kreacher making stew and transformed it into a delectable stew with herbed dumplings! I have still have a link to her cookbook in my linktr.ee (not an ad, she doesn’t even know who I am). If you want a more specific book recipe, she does have Kreacher’s French Onion Soup in there!
Recipe Number 2!! Unlike Harry Potter being the Undesirable No. 1, this is my Desirable No. 1 – Chocolate Layered Cake 😋 Happiest of Happy Birthdays to Harry Potter, the boy that lived, and the boy that brought magic to the world. I’ve had a GREAT time breaking this series down with you all and I hope you have had a fraction of the amount of fun as I have! ✨
And for those wondering, my daughter insisted on having a Harry Potter themed birthday cake for her 29th birthday…the baker thought I was crazy when I was describing exactly what she wanted as her cake decoration 😂 Kids, am I right 🤦🏻♂️
