We went all our for Husband's birthday a couple of weeks ago. Seriously, you only turn 33 once. The kids love making big deals about birthdays. They suggested balloons, a banner, flowers, birthday hats, Husband's favorite dinner, a cake and, of course, snakes and dinosaurs. Yes, last year they gave him a toy dinosaur and spider and this year it was a toy dinosaur and toy snake. So, since they lack the ability to drive a car, cook a meal, bake a cake, and purchasing power for such things, I made it happen.
I'm not a baker (I have never made a cake except from a box and that does not count) so I always make a non-cake dessert for Husband's birthday cake. This year I decided on a cheesecake. I've never actually make a cheesecake either but Husband always says it's easy so I thought I'd give it ago. I made a Hazelnut Cheesecake but used almonds instead of hazelnuts - for the main reason that we already had almonds. It was pretty fantastic. And we used the leftover amaretto whipped cream in our coffee the next morning. That was a wonderful treat!
|Phineas and Ferb also joined the party. Notice Son and Daughter picked out pink and green candles.|
|CHEESE. taking a break between dessert and dinner. We should always have dessert first!|
|"Look, I made a Daddy tower."|
|He was so excited.|

Happy Birthday, love.
