HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MOMMA B! TODAY IS THE DAY!!
please excuse my absence for the past couple days. i have been out living life.
i have pictures to prove it!
and for the sake of keeping a long post as short as possible, this will be mainly photos and minimal rambles :)
saturday morning, marshall and i went to the farmers’ market to get things for my mom’s birthday dinner.
it was a lovely time at the market! as per usual.
momma b requested salmon & halibut for her dinner. i buy fish at one place and one place only: aquarius fish.
if you live in the SLC and need fish, this is where you need to go! it is on 300 south and about 350 west, right next to caputo’s deli. not only will you get the freshest fish in the city.. you will also get to see this stud:
cody is one of my best friends. he just so happens to slang fish for a living. it works out well.
we snagged our salmon and halibut, along with a jar of this:
i can’t wait to use it!
and then we were on our merry way. we headed to a birthday party for anakin, he’s one! i didn’t take photos at the party.. but i ate my weight in homemade beef jerky and it was fabulous.
after the party i went to momma b’s where she taught me the ways of making the perfect red waldorf (red velvet) cake.
i will be posting a recipe page for this sometime soon. turns out it is a very technical process and timing is very important when making this cake!
whew! finished product will be shown below.
after the cake shenanigans it was off to sushi with some girl friends. we went to my favorite: takashi.
guess what? we ordered the exact same rolls as the last time i went! what can i say, they are delicous.
T & T roll:
sunday we celebrated my mom’s birthday with a delicious dinner!
on the menu:
- roasted red potatoes
- fresh fruit
- watermelon & basil salad
- corn on the cob
and then, of course, there was cake.
i ate my way around that frosting. you know me.
oh, one more photo. look what i got from sister in cali!
yay, i can’t wait to put this to use.
there you have it. billions of photos, hope i didn’t bore ya ;)
STATE FAIR TONIGHT! i cannot, cannot, CANNOT wait. it is the best part of september!!!
