Today is Linda’s birthday and as is her tradition, we went out to an early movie and dinner. We saw “Mission Impossible - Ghost Protocol”. It was very, very good! Lots of action scenes, of course, and a lot of neat technology stuff too. Very enjoyable. Next we went to dinner at Olive Garden. Oh, wow, did we stuff ourselves.
This morning I took a chance and baked a carrot cake…Linda’s favorite. I’ve never made a cake from scratch before…I’m a box cake mix girl, but I wanted to try. I went online and looked for a recipe for “best carrot cake” and found this recipe. It turned out pretty good.
You can even see the grated carrots in there along with the pecans. Yeh, that’s cream cheese frosting.
This recipe is a keeper and will make another appearance for my Jim’s birthday next year.
Tomorrow we drive to the military base in El Centro and have Christmas dinner with our friends, Scott and Diane Howey, who are staying at the FamCamp. There is prime rib and lobster on the menu…oh, yes I can break tradition and eat lobster for Christmas, you betcha!!!
Jim and I want to wish all of you a Merry Christmas and hope you are with someone you love for Christmas.
Remember, you are loved.
