The Birthday Girl!

Yesterday, March 31 was Liz' birthday!  The three of us went out to dinner to celebrate.  Today her long time friend Pam came to visit with her daughter Amelia - more on that in another post.  We had a wonderful dinner, and an amazing dessert.  The dessert is in the foreground. Kathy made a jelly roll made up of a thin vanilla cake rolled around a layer of mascarpone, and then covered with European chocolate icing.  Then a bit of white frosting was drizzled on the top!  Man oh man!  A wonderful celebration and an astounding feast!

Happy Birthday Liz! A beautiful picture! For some odd reason, the photo reminded me of a memory I have of us as kids and you digging a hole in the back yard under the rope swing. You were a pirate or investigator digging to Middle Earth and so determined. A lot of good memories as kids at your house! Trace

What a nice surprise that Liz is visiting! She looks great!! I noticed that her cake looked like a "jelly roll" cake but Kathy's version sounds absolutely delicious. Hope you all have a wonderful visit. betsey
