Lars and I worked to put together a nice little BBQ for the four of us: Larry, Jonathan, I and my sister-in-law Kristina. Larry and I had never made guacamole before, so he did the chopping and I did the mincing and blending. It turned out great even though we forgot cilantro. Lars grilled a Mexican marinaded chicken and I shucked fresh corn on the cob that got bbq'd and I made my old family traditional butter-fried crook-neck squash (in the purple bowl).
Our lovely meal. =)
Last night, I baked and frosted my first double layer cake. I knew I'd never have time to bake two cakes and frost and decorate while putting dinner on the table, too. I've never used the icing canisters before (only the homemade frosting you put into the paper tubes with the metal tips) and let me tell you, PRACTICE before you put it on the cake. The pressure is just like a can of squirt cheese, so it keeps coming out even after you're finished with your design! We put candles on it and they sang to me. I figured we didn't need two cakes, and since this was my special gift for Lars, we could share it.
I got a pink pastel opalescent beach cruiser for my birthday. I was going to get up and go on the Relief Society bike ride Early Saturday but I was still a bit sick from a food poisoning run from Thursday evening. The man we got it from was doing a pro-mo, so we got a $15 basket free...
