There was also a big birthday celebration for a friend that prompted Mary and I to make this:
(Chocolate layer cake with chocolate ganache and marshmallow frosting, toasted)
An amazing afternoon that involved baking, sitting around chatting on the patio, and my first trip to Surfas. I was immediately in love and I'm going to have to devote a whole afternoon to wandering around this amazing spot. For the time being, we bought a cake box and lunch.
(Lemonade and a grilled cheese - White Cheddar, Fontina And Blue Cheese Mayo On Pecan Raisin Bread - YUM)
Our kitchen helpers:
(Potato, Charlie, Zoe)
The birthday party was Saturday evening at The Penthouse at The Huntley Hotel, and it was pretty fantastic. There were lots of martinis involved. A great sort of Saturday night, indeed.
Sunday was of course Dad's Day, and I got to go home and cook up some yummy lunch for the fam!
(Steaks, farmer's market potatoes, salad, bread, lemonade)
And now it's Monday. Le sigh...
