Christmas birthday cake

I asked Baxter what kind of frosting he wanted on his birthday cake: vanilla, peppermint, or chocolate. His answer: “brown.”   

Grateful for this feast

From the top center: asparagus with  sesame oil, mashed potatoes and gravy, stuffing and gravy, smoked turkey dark and light, cranberry relish, sweet potato soufflé, fan tan rolls, Brussels sprouts with pancetta.  Best. Thanksgiving. Dinner. Ever.

“Mama, this is so fun. I love cooking with you. This is as fun as going to Oaks Park and going on the funnest ride.”

All the fixings are ready! Let’s see if anyone other than me chooses broccoli. 😉

Birthday cake 

We had to postpone Amelia’s birthday party because she got sick, but we’re still having a small family party at home, just the four of us. Here’s her homemade birthday cake, inexpertly decorated by me: chocolate-chocolate chip cake with vanilla buttercream frosting.
