Yesterday was our friend Adam’s birthday, which required a pirate theme and a parrot named Eli that we affixed to the birthday boy’s chair. My sister stopped by Vine American party store, and managed to find some chocolate gold coins, jolly rogers and assorted pirate accouterments for the dinner table.

The menu continued the theme with Walk the Plank-Roasted Salmon, which we roasted in the oven on a cedar plank. The cedar imparts a smoky sweetness to the fish, and is heavenly with a honey-mustard-rosemary glaze. Happy Birthday, Matey!
