Dinner with the outlaws

Shannon's mom and step-dad came up to visit today, along with Shannon's two brothers and one brother's fiancee. They took us out to dinner for our birthdays, but I'm afraid I was pretty quiet. A group of 7 pretty much overwhelms me. It was nice to see Bev and Bob again, and Jason and Robby. I don't know Lisa very well, but she seems nice. She'll be my sister-in-law in June, so perhaps I will get to know her better as time goes on. I very much like Jason, her fiance, so I trust his judgment.

When they all departed, they left behind them 3/4 of a gigantic chocolate cake. Seriously. 6 people ate slices of this cake, and that barely left a dent. Much of it will go to waste, I'm afraid. I just can't eat that much cake. I was planning on buying a small lemon cake for my birthday (family tradition requires eating cake for breakfast on the day after your birthday), but I dare say I will be tired of cake by then.

I'm kind of tired of it now. Man, that was a big slice of cake.

You could always leave the parts of the cake that you don't want in People's Park, or anywhere else where homeless people hang out. Leaving it with a few plastic forks might be an especially nice gesture.

Freeze it!
It will be great when you want something sweet and it's warm out.

Cut the cake into slices, wrap well, and freeze? Then if you ever get a craving for chocolate, it will be right there waiting for you.

Oh yes, freezing is a good idea! in small slices, perfect for when the sweet tooth hits but no too decadent.

Whoa, I didn't know there was a pending wedding. Congratulations!!!
