Rewind: Darren's Birthday...

(February 2010)

So I tried to plan a little get together for Darren's birthday, but what I didn't realize was that evening was when the Superbowl was on. Whoops. But we had a good time anyway. We had good food (including teriburgers and sweet potato fries to name a few), and for dessert we made MALASADAS! We had a bit of difficulty finding the right temperature for the oil (because the numbers on my skillet are all scratched off), but there was plenty of dough (and then some) to experiment a little before finding perfection.

I wasn't thinking and didn't take any pictures. Here's one that Darren snapped of the malasada-making. Too bad I didn't get a picture of the birthday boy on his birthday. Whoops again.

The one success of the evening, no "whoops" required, was Darren's gift. I compiled a book of letters written to Darren (not old letters, but letters written specifically for his birthday book). Thank you to all who contributed! I'm so pleased with how it turned out!!!

I like that letter book idea. I just might have to steal it....or you could just tell me how you did it :P
