Two for One Lucky Me!!
I celebrated my birthday with a dinner tonight with not just one, but 2 cakes!! I guess since it has been about 16 years since I had a Baskin Robbins icecream cake for my birthday I had to get 2 of them!!
What actually happened was that our friends told TJ they would buy the birthday cake and he forgot so I went out and got one and they showed up with one!!! LOL My new friend, Amanda, had given me several goft certificates so I got mine at a discount. I added ice cream, too, in case anyone wanted some chocolate.
Anyway, here is the one I bought....
I couldn't resist the pink!!
Here is the one they bought...
It was personalized!! The 2 cakes together matched my 2nd generation traditional birthday table cloth!!!
For dinner I made spaghetti with mostly homemade sauce(I roasted some Roma tomatoes and sauteed canned mushrooms, zucchini, green pepper, garlic, dried onions and yellow and orange tomatoes and added canned tomato sauce). I also had a colorful salad(lettuce, shredded carrots, and pink and purple radishes)
Ed lit the candles and had a really hard time with the 4 as it was bent over. Ironically (or maybe not) that was the candle I had trouble blowing out!!
These are what the cakes looked like inside....
White cake and strawberry icecream

After dinner and cake we played Outburst(from 1988!!) and Scattergories. It was a great time. Scout, as always, got lots of attention :)
