I'm feeling FiftyOneDerFull!
My little Landscaper-in-Training called to say,
"Happy Birthday, Oma," just as we were enjoying
long-distance cake with cousins. It was awfully
cute to hear the little voices saying hello to one
another across the miles through the magic of
This delicious celebratory meal was lovingly
prepared by Mr. Last. He knows what I like.
Chocolate cake is standard, but the salmon fillet grilled
on a cedar plank with tarragon and dill was extra special.
I tease him about his inordinate fondness for kitchen gadgets, but I must agree that the right tools add to the presentation and enjoyment of a delicious meal.
Thank you, one and all, for taking the time and trouble to make Oma feel so loved.
