Happy 59th Birthday, Papa Bender!

by Jenn (eating bender) on January 11, 2011

1-11-11. It’s somebody’s lucky day. :)

From then:

To now:

You continue to amaze and inspire. Always the practical jokester, you never fail to brighten a room with your corny, silly sense of humor. But most importantly of all (in the food blog world, anyway), you continue to create the best recipes for our family to enjoy.

Here’s to 59 more glorious years.  I love you very, very much!

Dads are truly great! I love how you always feature yours so much :-) I treasure my close relationship with my dad–I am definitely a daddy’s girl ha ha.
