Last Sunday we celebrated an anniversary, with ice cream. This Sunday we celebrated a birthday, without ice cream. And even without birthday cake! But don't feel sorry for us.
All summer long we celebrate birthdays and anniversaries, but August is crazy. (I've enumerated them before, so I'll spare you the list.) Today was a birthday dinner in Kristin's honor.
Our longtime tradition is to let the Birthday Girl (or Boy) choose the menu on her (or his) special day. Kristin is easy to please and said "Anything is fine." So I presented several options and she chose to have crab cakes. (Can I help it if crab cakes are one of my favorites too?)
Kati was in charge of dessert and told Kristin to check out her Pinterest board. Merciful heavens! The dessert was Peanut Butter Brownie Fudge Trifle. Seriously.
I'll bet you don't feel sorry for us.
