Guess what Zari's birthday present request was?
"36-month aged Parmesan cheese and 7-year aged Cheddar cheese"
I love this girl. I gave her a big hunk of Parmigiano Reggiano for her 9th birthday present.
We did our yearly ritual of reading her birth story and looking at her memory book. This year she squirmed and giggled, clearly enjoying the attention.
We had an impromptu dinner gathering tonight. Some friends called us this afternoon and asked if we wanted to go trick-or-treating together.
Me: Sure! Come on over.
Friends: We made chili. Do you want to eat together at your house afterwards?
I love friends who bring dinner :)
This year's cake was simple--no soccer balls or caterpillars or globes or fairy gardens or layered ombres. Just delicious brown butter pumpkin cake with brown butter icing. Mmmmmm.
Notice the 36 on the cake? I didn't have 9 candles, but I did have #3 and #6. 3+6=9!
