Hello Everyone,

Yesterday was a very good day!  We celebrated my youngest's 17th birthday.  I can't believe he is 17!

Because it was such a beautiful day outside, we grilled my special hamburgers.  The hubs caught the grill on fire, there were no burgers harmed... thank goodness!

We are BIG fresh fruit fanatics and these were all so ripe and tasty.

Pavi had to be the official gift inspector.  He has added that to his other duties of quilt inspector.

Even though we had fresh fruit, on a birthday you have to have something decadent!  So I made him a Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cake. Notice one thing I forgot was candles.  We searched the house and all we could come up with was a 2!  It was symbolic...

Slice of cake... everything made from scratch... buttercream frosting, chocolate chip cookies, cake, and cookie dough filling.

Lots of butter in this baby.

Looks great and was a ton of work, but so worth it for my son!

Low calorie and low fat, only in my mind.... You can find the recipe by clicking here.

We had a great day, great company and ended with this...

My boy and me!  Love you!

Happy Birthday!

Until Next Time...
