Today we had a little family get together to celebrate Grace's birthday. G took Grace to the park in the morning and lunch came togther smoothly. I wore my cheffy apron and enjoyed the flow of a well planned food prep session. I made finger food, crispy soy and ginger chicken wings and tofu, grilled corn and a big plate of nori rolls. Grace, of course, insisted on trying the wasabi. She'll learn to love it's sinus clearing properties one day, I'm sure. Lunch was finished off with chocolate cake filled with raspberry studded ersatz marscapone and iced with a shiny ganache. I wish I'd taken a photo, it wasn't as rich as it sounds but it was pretty damn good. We all sung happy birthday to Grace who really just wanted to get at the cake, although she did find mummy demonstrating the blowing of candles amusing.
Nearly everyone had the digital camera out at some point, so I'm expecting some new Flickr photos eh? I'm on a mission to get every digital camera in my family linked up in Flickr, even if it's in a private group. What's the point of all this clicky, clicky if we don't share?
I'm tired. It's been a big couple of days. Grace was so good today, she said thank you for her presents and only had a few little wobblies. Except for the big one before bed time, but we'll let that one through to the keeper because it was a big day and there was chocolate and not much of an afternoon nap. Like we say around here, it's very big, being little.
Oh, and go the mighty blues!!! I think I might have to jump on the footy bandwagon this year. It's so much fun if winning is involved.
