Shee-Un*

My oven is broked. I don't bake much at all, and anything else I've been using an electric griddle. So. My husband's birthday was yesterday. I remember 5 days ago that maybe I should bake him a cake. Cuz, you know, it's only the big decade. Maybe I could break open a 2 dollar cardboard box and throw it in the oven to show how much I love him. But I've been an ingredient reader for a long time and aside from not being able to get a whole baked anything to come out of my oven, my love for my family precludes me from buying many of the items that we Americans call "food."

I did the next best thing I could do given my circumstances. I bought a locally baked angel food cake, organic strawberries, blueberries and raspberries. A carton of heavy cream. I whipped up the whipped cream, blended up some berries, cut the cake in half, stuffed it with cream and berries, poured some on top and...VIOLA!  I mean VOILA!!

My boys were thoroughly impressed.



After my boys' favorite meal of "roll you own" California roll:



Happy Birthday to my Main Man, my Handsome Husband, my Heaven-sent.  You are the strongest man I know.

* His age, in Korean.  ;-)

That is one of my most favorite cakes ever. I love angel food. I also like angel food topped with crushed up toffee bars mixed in whipped cream. Yum! Have you ever had a Pavlova? You would like that if you liked the cake you made.

Happy Birthday to your main man!! May he enjoy 50 more years of health and happiness.
