Birthday Fun

My birthday was this past Monday and it was pretty fun all through out the week. On Sunday, we had a fabulous steak dinner paired with a baked potato bar. It was like heavin on earth. Sister Nate cooked the food!! It just so happens that her birthday is the same as mine, so we had a joint birthday dinner. Michael and I supplied dessert. We had a cake made for the both of us. It was made by the same girl that made Michael's. My side was pink and had our rats and a crown. Maria's side had a rolling pin, a campfire, and the Republican elephant. It was good too!!! Top layer was a chocolate cake with a chocolate ganache filling and the bottom was a velvet red cake with a cream cheese filling. On Monday, I was off work for my actual birthday. I went back to the salon after getting my hair on Saturday and not liking it, and getting it redone. Work decided to not schedule me for whatever reasons. On Monday night, I went out to dinner with the Nates. We went to Bajio, then to the straw maze. I didn't think the maze would be very good, but it was. Michael was in class so he wasn't able to come with us. He did get me a bouquet of flowers and some chocolates though. It was really nice of him since we don't have much money right now. I came to work on Wednesday since I still had hours in the pharmacy. On Thursday when I came here, I was handed a cake from the manager. That was a nice surprise. Since then, I have been planning my 30th birthday party. Not too far away from that anymore. Only 7 years!!! That's insane!!!
I got bored the other day and decided to make truffles. I tried a new recipe and it turned out really good. The recipe I used before didn't harden the chocolate like it was supposed to. This one actually hardened. I wanted to make them flavored but wasn't sure how to. I just rolled them in cocoa and they taste amazing. I also had a craving for potato soup so I made that too. It was like a baked potato soup. I added bacon, broccoli, and cheese. AMAZING!!!!
