the birthday dinner was outstanding as a matter of fact is was so good we just had the leftovers.
The house still reeks of garlic. I had roasted 3 heads of garlic for the chicken so the aroma lingers from that then cooking the chicken with the garlic just added to it.
The Key Lime Pie was wonderful, my sister normally does not eat sweets finished a pretty good size slice.
The Italian Meringue did not weep but I did not seal it to the crust so it did slide a bit. But I found the taste and texture much better than a regular meringue. I will be doing that again. (and as long as I accomplished that I just may have to try making Italian Butter Cream Frosting. So so much better than "our" typical butter cream frosting.
Just took a pork shoulder out of the freezer getting ready to make pulled pork on Sunday. Great way to have leftovers for a few days and I always put a good portion in the freezer so I can make Pork Fried Rice.
Oh, thank you all for the good wishes. 70 years old. Amazing he has recovered from the broken hip and dealing with the Alzheimer's is sometimes a challenge but all in all he is doing pretty good. Good days and some not so good. But he constantly amazes me. I am glad that he is doing as well as he is. (I don't know but that may be the Pollyanna in me or a bit of denial)
