Birthday Ka-bob(by)

birthday desciption in 2 words: bobby & kabob
the husband outdid himself on friday. i felt lots of love.
saturday was made possible by friends who were willing to participate in our little kabob experiment.for those of you who have not yet discovered good eats, Alton Brown is my favorite foodie. watching Dis-kabob-ulated was pretty much a double dare to give this a try in our own backyard.
(however we aren't much for digging holes in our grass. So the engineer of the family improvised)followed by an angel food cake, mmm mmmm.... this year i tried this black and white one.
it didn't come out quite as pictured on the recipe, and i think i'd add like 3 times the cocoa, but it was a fun change.
and since cinco de mayo is our favorite time to practice our pinata making skills, we just have to find a time to bust it open.. Excuses, excuses, i know. I'm full of them!
and our pinata is full of tootsie rolls and fruit snacks.thanks for the birthday love everyone!
and especially bobby, you were fabulous at cooking, cleaning, and making me smile.

I like your hair! What a super fun birthday party, the kabob idea looks so fun, and yummy! I think we need to re-create it in Oregon this summer...

Man...those kabobs were delicious! And seriously...I am still thinking about how cool the cooking method was--I loved that coal pit!

Whoa, happy birthday! That is my favorite cake ever - I've considered grinding dark chocolate bars to put in the chocolate cake part instead of ground cocoa, but have yet to try that...what a cool idea you guys had with the kabobs!

Wow - what a party! I love the idea for the kabobs - very impressive! I'm glad to see that things have improved since the Costco granola days. :)
