One finger typing on this Nook is a PITA!
Hello Kayelle, great to hear that you are having such a nice time, sounds lovely

Yup, his birthday is next week, we are having a big party tomorrow. I'm going to make a 1/4 sheet cake 4 thin layers, filled with almond flavored Swiss meringue buttercream, with shaved chocolate sprinkled over the buttercream. I'll probably brush the layers with an ameretto infused simple syrup. I'll enrobe the whole thing in dark chocolate ganache. Not sure how I'll decorate it.

Oh dear. All us DCers would love to be there, so now you need to bake us a virtual cake. Sorry to add to the pressure, Bakechef, and Happy Birthday to your partner!

Being enrobed in dark chocolate ganache doesn't sound half bad!

We need to see a picture of this one, it sounds fantastic!

Does he bake a cake for you on your birthday?

Sitting here eating supper and cruising the forums. Had popcorn shrimp with roasted squash and cherry and sunburst tomatoes. The tomatoes taste pretty good cooked in the oven, just have to remember not to put as much pepper on them next time.

Seems to me being in the water would be good for your foot, nice gentle movement with no stress on the bones. Since Dawg knows more about snorkeling than I do, I would follow her advice.
