the things i will do for my husband

Ok as most of you know his birthday is coming up. He is notoriously hard to shop for. So I keep a list of things in my head for such occasions when I can't think of anything else to get him (no not those things) things like this:

It's a Trifle.

And yes that is ground beef in there.

Have you ever seen the episode of friends where Rachel makes desert for Thanksgiving, and she mixes a trifle recipe with a Shepard's pie recipe? Well ever since the first time my husband watched that episode he has wanted a trifle just like that one. So Happy Birthday My Husband.

And for you that have not seen that episode. I found it on youtube, well the important part. Enjoy.

So for those if you who missed the ingredients it went a little like this. (I made some changes, so I'll write down what I did)

A layer of lady fingers (ok its pound cake), raspberry jam, vanilla pudding (I don't do custard from scratch), raspberries, more pound cake, beef sauteed with peas and carrots, more pound cake, raspberry jam (two layers of jam for my husband), more pudding, bananas and whipped cream (whipped fresh).

Hard at Work

So I've been working for a few weeks now. Its challenging, exhausting, sometimes tedious and sometimes (yes sometimes) fun, plus I don't have go to the gym. It also leaves me little time for much else. It also means that on high vacation/party weekends no-one gets to take the day off. So I will be MIA for the festivities.

I will be thinking about you all, while I bust my butt loading gravel into the back of old ladies cars. Have lots of fun, take lots of pictures and remember the sunscreen.

Peace out.
