Jeff turned 38 with the New Year yesterday and Edie and I made him a chocolate cake. I used my favorite buttermilk chocolate cake recipe and then we tried a new frosting with mascarpone and Kahlua in it. Not too shabby:
Jeff got to sleep in until almost 11am, was given the gift of some Peace and Quiet while I took Edie to the gym with me in the afternoon, and then we went to Ray's Boathouse Cafe for fish and chips and crab cakes, followed by birthday cake at home before bed:
We are planning a weekend in Portland just the two of us as his real gift, which is the best kind because I benefit as well. Happy birthday old man - I hope this year brings you everything you wished for.
