Picture this: I walk into a room with a piece of paper and a pen. "I'm going to the store to pick up groceries for tomorrow. What do you want? Anything at all," I say.
I get a blank stare in response and, then, a quizzical, Why? So, I write the number 43 on the piece of paper and hold it up. Oh, is that tomorrow?
"Yes. Tomorrow is your birthday and I'm taking requests for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert." Most people would jump at the opportunity to name whatever they want to eat for an entire day...from my kitchen. Seriously. The boys make requests down to the snacks on their birthdays.
But my husband just looked at me and said, "I can only think of two things right now: tiramisù and beer." Fine.
When we served it, I offered a shot of Frangelico and a shot of espresso that Jake and I could pour on our servings. The boys' pieces were not so boozy that way!
