I love birthday celebrations, we recently celebrated our daughter, Susan's special day.
It was a small informal birthday dinner here at home, she loves her dad's grilled steaks, the sides were baked potatoes, creamed corn, green beans and salad,
|Oops! grin~can you find the crooked candle? ~|
of course birthday cake.
We surprised her at work with her favorite, black midnight, the layers are dark chocolate, with a caramel icing, topped with, toasted pecans, I have made this for her birthday since she was very small.
Time to open her gifts, like me she loves scented candles!
Most of the vegetables used were vegetables we grew. I made a huge pot, enough for several meals and to share with dear daughter.
Today I will be working in the vegetable garden, getting ready to plant the garlic, weeding, winterizing by mulching.
