How are you guys doing in the heat?
Here the days are melting away and thunderbugs cover just about
every surface, making it impossible to enjoy the outdoors.
In the green house however, the plants have really taken off and we can
finally see some giant leaves and girl flowers on the pumpkins!
It's Cinnamon man's birthday today. We're having a party Saturday,
but I wanted to cook him a nice meal on his big day as well. (He's Skypeing
with America right now, so I thought I would do a quick post.)
We started off with fish soup, continued with (homegrown) vegetable
and pork pie, and finished off with a chocolate layer cake.
The cake has coffee cream butter filling, two layers of caramel sauce
and a chocolate mousse frosting. I think this might be my very first
tall/three layer cake, but it certainly won't be my last :)
I gave my man a case of beer (romantic, non? ;)) and my parents
gifted us some nice dessert wine, but his real present is a bit delayed
because my man couldn't decide on what he wanted until last week...
And I have realized it will most likely entail some major sewing.
