My Birthday Dinner

I had a lovely birthday.  I had lots of cards,  phone calls, emails, and facebook messages wishing me a lovely day. We went out to lunch.  Then we picked out my very expensive birthday gift.  New eye glasses.  We went shopping at the Berkeley Bowl for dinner. When we got home, more phone calls for me.  Marty was busy with a do over on the Angel Food Cake.  Plus he was making won ton soup for me, per my request.   The cake was spectacular.  And the soup, on my so very tasty and hearty.

I am a lucky spoiled girl.

This is how an Angel food cake should looks as it comes out of the oven.
Last week's cake. Very short.
This is last night's cake.  Look at how much higher it is.
Quality Control!  YUMMY!

Champagne for the birthday celebration.  And that is why the food turned out so well.

The wonderful soup.  Mushrooms, shrimp, bok choy, noodles and other goodness.

Last week's cake, a little short.

Last night's iced cake: high and light, and rich and on my goodness this was so great.

Yay! I am delighted your cake rose, your hubby cooked (what did you think I was going to say, eh?), and your wonderfulness was properly acknowledged! Your lovely card from me remains in my desk, oops. Love kts
