The Little Ham’s Big Day

Zoe's B-Day (12 of 12)

Zoe turns 1!

It is hard for me to believe that I gave birth to “Little Ham” a year ago. So, for Zoe’s first birthday, I had visions of her, a cake and a horrible mess!  My baking skills these days are so-so, and seeing as this was her first birthday ever, I wanted something special; a very girly-girl cake with tons of rich icing. While sitting at my desk, pondering my options, I remembered all those delicious cupcakes from Suzie’s Shortbreads that I had eaten during my pregnancy and decided to give them a call to see if they could muster up a very special cake for me. No problem, it would be ready the next day! Yay for Zoe; I only hoped that she would enjoy it.

Now, where would this messy occasion take place? My dining room? Not likely! Where could I go where everyone knew me, Zoe & Doug and not hate us forever for a mess? Well, the natural choice was my second home, The Five Fishermen of course!  It was a great evening, being surrounded by my second family and enjoying some of my new stimulus menu, while not having to worry about scraping ooey-gooey chocolate icing off the floor. Doug had the Big Eye Tuna on a quinoa & Terra Beata cranberry salad, while I had the grilled Tatamagouche lamb leg with celery root & beets. Full of food, and all of us covered in chocolate, I could not have imagined celebrating the Little Ham’s birthday in any other place or in any other way.
