One of the nicest traditions of our hospital stay is a romantic dinner delivered to all new parents. The nurses will take the baby while a waitress wheels a linen-covered table into your family's birthing room. The photo above doesn't really do it justice. Say what you will about hospital food--to someone who’s had heartburn for weeks prior, a rib-eye steak and twice-baked potato is a sight for sore eyes. Mmmmm! They even include a bottle of sparkling grape juice on ice to toast the new arrival. The turtle cheesecake tastes even sweeter with the knowledge that you won’t be going to a restaurant alone anytime soon. Of all the special meals out we’ve shared, our two stork dinners remain our favorite.
