This should be a new Food Network show. Last Minute Birthday Dinner Challenge! I can be the star! I turned my day upside down, happily, and came up with fried chicken, mashed potatoes, gravy, green beans, garlic rolls, birthday cake, and homemade vanilla ice cream.
Felicia is 18 today, so I asked her official permission to post her picture.
