It's the universal birthday rule: On the day that you were born, you must consume a few of your favorite foods. Or all of them, if you're really committed to birthday-ing — and it looks like Cynthia Bailey is. The Real Housewives of Atlanta pal turned 52 on February 19, and clearly, doughnuts and farm-fresh comfort food were in order.
In an Instagram post, Cynthia gave us food voyeurs a close-up peek at her birthday dinner. We're so glad she did, because we are determined to recreate this meal ASAP. (It's not our birthday but ... YOLO, right?)
Eating at Farmers & Distillers in Washington, D.C., the birthday girl made a very, vert smart decision. She ordered what looks like the Chicken Fried Steak & Donut. Her patterned plate held breaded steak smothered in white-cream gravy; the sides were green beans, mashed potatoes, and — cue angels singing — a maple-glazed doughnut.
Happy birthday to Cynthia, indeed!
