Eddie It's My Birthday! It's My Birthday! Friday

Today is Eddie's 34th birthday! We celebrated by spending the entire day at the port in Los Angeles, which was not at all our plan. Don't you all wish you were here? Apparently, LA County is expecting a lot of rain (and possibly mud) as they are under a flood watch. Oh, joy. I don't think we got the pontoon option on our truck; I hope we don't wake up floating in the Pacific.

While
we were waiting, I baked him a Devil's Food cake in the convection microwave. Did you hear me? I BAKED A CAKE. In a truck. How freakin' great is that???

We haven't eaten it yet (I have frosting, decorations and candles to adorn it) but while it was cooking, it smelled so delicious I thought I was going to burn my nose from pressing it up against the glass trying to get a closer look. It's not from scratch, as I used a boxed mix, but it cooked up really nicely and I'm very excited at the prospect of doing more baking.

So join me in wishing Eddie a happy 34th...

You may sing now if you'd like.

I'm just thinking about how good it smells when you have a chocolate cake baking in a house and can only imagine it must be magnified ten times over to have that aroma in the cab of a semi!
Congrats to Eddie on the birthday and hope the cake -and other goodies (???) will make it all a really memorable day/night for him! (For you too!)

Happy 34th Eddie! That looks like quite the cake and it was cooked in an oven and not on the exhaust manifold. To be 34 again, had to say that as my 64th was on Thursday. Please don't float out to sea as we are looking forward to you writing more stories to about your adventures in the new truck.

Happy Birthday Eddie!

What more could you ask for --- a new truck, a woman who can cook, a woman who can drive a truck, and a woman who is good looking! Best of all three women come in one, which makes it a lot easier!
