Birthday Cake and Birthday Dinner

A quick break from Africa updates....tonight it felt so good to make dinner.  Peter's birthday dinner a day late and still being savored- cake will be for breakfast!!  He asked for the Leithauser usual- salmon cakes, homemade mac n cheese and broccoli.  I was off my game and forgot the breadcrumbs but used crushed saltines, forgot the stewed tomatoes and lemon juice- we survived and clean plates were at every seat- hooray!   With the store run and cooking cake went in late so I'll frost it next and let the kinds indulge in the morning.  I offered a store bought one but he wouldn't do it....sweet kid and sweet life on Newark-Granville Road.
