I don’t know WHERE she gets it… *eye roll*

26 Jan

Bruce and I are about to celebrate our 7th wedding anniversary on Monday.  To mark the end of what is (hopefully) our hardest year, I signed us up for a cooking class.  In the words of my not-at-all-sarcastic sister, “why would Bruce like that?!”

But, truthfully, it is Bruce who has always suggested it would be fun to take some cooking classes.  We didn’t have time for an actual course, but I found an evening class where you got to eat the food that was made.  We had apple and blue cheese soup with hardtack (there was a pirate theme!), codfish fritters, pork tenderloin with prune and walnut stuffing and rum gravy (the chef made this gravy out of thin air I-kid-you-not!), and honey cake with rum whipping cream.  DELICIOUS!!

So, since this would be more enjoyable with just the two of us, and since we were celebrating an event that they were not present for in the first place, we hired a babysitter to look after the small ones.  I instructed the babysitter that anyone who finished her supper could have leftover birthday cake and that I had put it in the fridge in an ice cream container.  When it was time for the cake to served, Holly and Joanna were searching the fridge…

“It’s in the ice cream container” piped up Holly.

“No, I don’t think so” answers Joanna.

At this point, Joanna decides to inspect the container as it is the only place left to look.

“Hey, it is in here!” she exclaims.

“Surprise, surprise” sasses Bronwyn.

Saucy smart-alec!  Where does she get that mouth?

    bruce is a foodie, with a sixth sense of what works in food from childhood (not that he practices)…makes sense. You are already a good cook, so especially makes sense. Sounds like it was a good time, and a constructive way to work forward on an anniversary. Now was that Birthday cake from Holly that you all had discipline to hoard for another special occasion? Yummmm…like the Olivinia is in the margarine container (not).
