For the thoughtful birthday wishes! Husband and I had a wonderful birthday.
As if it wasn't enough to spend my birthday learning about cake-baking from Julia Child, Husband gave "us" tickets to a play (Peter Pan, in honor of my in-process children's literature M.Ed.), and I gave "us" a 2-volume set of the world's best English Language Dictionary. Husband has been wanting one for our growing library.
For the JC fans out there, we had the Le Glorieux (chocolate cake with filling, page 495-6 of Vol. II) and the Crème au Beurre, Mѐnagѐre (Butter Cream with powdered sugar and orange liqueur, page 681 of Vol. I)
