A Madcap Adventure

The soup and bread (Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day Master Recipe) turned out great, but I forgot to serve salad, d'oh! We had a happy birthday celebration. D. got some tshirts, exciting, I know.
Ahhh, the cake was scrumptious. I just used the same recipe for the frosting, except I used cocoa instead of the strawberry jam.

We had balloons, a crown, the birthday song, cards, gifts and cake!! What a great day... now this weekend we'll have a visit from Grandma and Grandpa!

Got a few repeats on the knitting done, looks like my idea about only 3 repeats instead of 4 was a good one! Hooray! Now I should go and check my Walker Treasuries to see if I've just reinvented the wheel or something...

Still reading the Bean Trees, pretty good. A madcap adventure.

I wish I'd seen that post, I was looking for a super simple chocolate cake but I settled for brownies instead!

"Settled" for brownies, indeed! That's a good one!!
