We all know it's downhill after 21, but the kids and I (with some help from Fe) still tried to make the day a little bit more special.
When it comes to any celebration in this family, food is the main event. We all love food.
This year Jared broke what is clearly the most important tradition - having cake for your birthday - and requested peanut butter chocolate dessert.
I had my doubts.
But I made it. And it was easy. Like did it in a half an hour and never had to turn on the oven easy.
It's not the most presentable thing you've ever eaten - although those classy as hell candles really take it up a notch - but believe me when I say it is delicious.
I bolded and italicized the word "delicious", it is that good.
Like I said, I had reservations. But it was amazing.
And because I know there are some fellow chocolate/peanut butter combo lovers out there like me (hello, to my Reese's holiday devotees!), I am linking this ridiculously easy recipe.
We had a meal, complete with fancy platters and bowls that we received for our wedding and hardly ever use. And we ate said meal with mandatory party hats on our heads because that is how crazy we roll around here.
Happy Birthday Jared!
I hope we made you feel special for the day.
