Friday I cooked and cleaned and sewed, just like a real wife! 😉 Here’s one of my recipes and my future skirt. This fabric is a dream to work with.
The party! Brian turned 25 this week, so we had an Irish dinner celebration last night. Ben bought him a GI Joe gun, which is targeting the meat in this picture. Notice my lovely soda bread! I should have made two, it was tasty, hearty, and quickly devoured.
The whole meal: Corned beef, boiled cabbage, soda bread slathered in butter, and assorted root vegetables – parsnips (“what’s that?”) carrots, turnips, and potatoes.
And for dessert I attempted the Norwegian Birthday Cake, a tradition in Ben’s family. It’s an angelfood cake with strawberry cream between three layers, coated in sweeted whipped cream, and topped with fresh strawberries.
