Two weeks down everyone. Great job!
Today is my birthday and we went to see an early morning movie at the Gateway. Have you ever been to this theater? I really like it! Tuesdays are free popcorn day and Calvin and I shared popcorn out of one of Jeni’s bowls.
All the rain and melting of snow has made me feel like Spring is on her way. I can’t wait.
Below we shared a cheese plate with bread from Omega (located in the North Market) for dinner. Calvin and I also co-made a birthday cake from Dinah Bucholz’s book, The Unofficial Harry Potter Cookbook. No matter how closely I follow the directions, I cannot seem to get the cakes to rise. I know cake making is challenging when not using a boxed cake, but I’d like to master it one of these days. I want to someday bake a tall, pillowy cake worthy of the one that I imagine Hermione gifting to Harry in the 3rd book. Julie, Dan, any tips?
