Making Ends Meet
Happy Birthday! (aka "What would you like for dinner?")
Every year, Donna cooks whatever the birthday boy or girl would like for dinner. This family tradition is so engraned that when Kim, back at home for her 32nd birthday, wanted shishkabobs, Donna was outside, in the pouring rain, with an umbrella, cooking shishkabobs on the grill! Everyone who has been to James & Donna's for a family gathering understands just what a great birthday present this is.
