as promised

Yesterday whirled out of control and before I knew it we were eating cake late at night and I hadn't posted.
I took the boys out for sushi.

checking the menu

We did a little of this.

We had some of this -

K ordered so much sashimi that we saw them loading it on to one of those wooden boats that they bring to the table...K really hates when people order the boat of sashimi and requested that they NOT bring him his dinner in a boat. So he had it on two giant slabs of wood instead.

two wooden slabs

It's not a fancy place, but the food is fresh and good and we spent a lot of time laughing. Middle was humming the theme from Godzilla, and we were all making suggestions for his yearbook quote. It still looks like he may go with something from Fight Club.

The boys picked out a giant pannini press/griddle for K for his birthday and we had a quiet evening, but we met in the kitchen later for some of this -

the creamy, custardy, cream-puff, creme brulleed terrificness that is a Saint Honore.
After a tough week, for a special birthday, with boys you love, I highly recommend it.

Happy birthday to my dear dear K, without whom I could never have done All These Things That I Have Done.

How about Buckaroo Bonzai for the quote:

Too Done?
Happy birthday, K!
I like your sashami style. Why go with a boat when you can have the entire slab?

Mmmm sashimi.

Although I've never been able to come at it with the same voracity I could pre-children. Weird.

I need some of that cake.

And I love your family.

And Happy Birthday K!
