We had a fun little birthday celebration for Ken today, and I just realized that we didn’t sing “Happy Birthday.” We also exchanged Christmas presents from last year. Pretty goofy, eh? Maybe the thrill of presents drove singing to someone else out of my mind. How could we have waited so long on our presents? Somehow, there was just always a reason to put it off the present exchange. The big reason was that they were not done yet, but there were other little reasons along the way.
Our lunch was lovely. I made baked spaghetti -- mundane, but always good, and not conflicting with any of the many food issues of the guests. Becca made two salads - an avocado and beet wonder, as well as a cucumber cilantro delight. Ana made two cakes, one for chocolate lovers and one for the gingerbread set. It looks like I got off easy with only one dish.
