Hello again!

Its been a quiet day in the McEwen house. Well... 'quiet' meaning 'not busy'. Not 'silent' at all - its been pretty loud here!

I forgot to blog earlier about Jenny's party at the in-laws last night. I think I mentioned the atlantic lobster dinner (yum!) but I didn't mention the part about the cake. I searched high and low here with the help of the folks at the grocery store for sour cherries to make the pie filling for Auntie Gloria's black forest cake but there was no such luck. Instead we bought pre-made pie filling. A total disappointment! And Jenny didn't have round cake pans so instead I made two 9X13" cakes (doubled the recipe). The cake traditionally has three layers but I found that two layers also works in a pinch. The cake was delightful, even with the bought pie filling. The German guys staying with the in-laws ate huge pieces and everyone told me how great it was! Thanks Auntie Gloria!!!

On the way home, Shea sang for at least 10 minutes about how good the cake was... she went into great detail about the gooey cherry pie filling and the sweet whipping cream and the soft chocolate cake... and on and on and on. It was so funny. I don't think I've ever heard someone sing about a cake!!

Well, that's all for now.

Moving forward with Joy.
