It's been a while since I've written about the joys of a birthday celebrated. If there's one thing about my group of friends, it's that we refuse to let a birthday go by without proper recognition. Ravena's birthday was March 5, and she wanted to spend it cooking for all of us. Three meals and an open house. Personally, I can't imagine how cooking throughout the day would bring anyone happiness, particularly on a birthday, but Ravena has always walked to the beat of her own drum. That drum happens to love cooking.
I documented a bit of the fare that was offered throughout the day*.
Ravena's friend Sharon made these vegan bad boys. I marveled at the creation of a bread product without eggs or milk.
Lunch was a croque monsieur, which I'm told is just a fancy ham and cheese sandwich.
Evolution of the birthday cake.
Chicken and dumplings for dinner. Yum!
I've left out photos of the people who attended, but if Adam is a barometer, everything was good and classy.
*I'm not stupid. I came early and camped out the entire day.
