Birthday Dinner

The cake – superb!
This is a chocolate peppermint cake from the Italian Dish:

The cake itself seemed a little dry after it cooled, and I wanted a bit more frosting to make 4 nice layers; however, the assembled cake was moist and lovely. Definitely a keeper. Here’s what was left after dinner and one post-dinner snack:

Before cake, we had subs, chips, grapes, and carrots/celery.

The subs:
Walmart sub buns and Aunt Millie’s Kaiser rolls.  Walmart’s sub buns are the best- the only thing we buy there.
Boar’s Head deli meat and cheese– so worth the 30 minute drive to the nearest store which carries Boar’s Head

Thumbs up, all around.
