The month started out with preparations being made for The Husband's birthday. Last year saw the glorious Spider-Man cake but rather than an elaborately shaped cake he chose to go for something a little more simple. Namely a pecan pie.
Between The Husband's birthday and my own one week later The In-Laws were incredibly generous and drove up to spend the day with us and celebrate. Delicious food was had by all and of course a trip to a fabulous bakery was a necessity.
Moving on we found ourselves rather suddenly creeping closer to my own birthday and wracking our brains the day before for something delectable to bake. We settled on a Brownie Cake with The Husband insisting we try our hand at turning it into 5 layers. And thus this creation was born:
As some of you may know, this year marked the 50th Anniversary of the British television show Doctor Who. I stumbled upon the show three or four years ago and have been hooked ever since. The Husband discovered that Seattle's EMP Museum was hosting a Doctor Who Celebration and of course I had to go!
Of course our November ended as most of yours did as well, with that holiday which brings family together over more food than could ever possibly be consumed in one sitting. We headed down to The In-Laws for the week and did in fact consume more food than we thought possible in one sitting with leftovers to spare. As The Husband's family are great appreciators of wine I had to try some and so sat with a little sherry glass so as to be able to sample what everyone else was drinking which were just as fantastic as you would expect them to be. Of course there was time spent playing games and doing a bit of shopping but mostly hanging around with family over good food and good wine and what better way to end a month is there than that?
All in all, I am enjoying the beginning of December and a sliver of hope to be less food focused (at least until Christmas) and begin working on getting some decorations up.
Happy holiday season to you all!
