Lemon Cake and Ham
We had Mike’s birthday celebration early in the day since he works the afternoon shift. We have a family custom to have the birthday person pick their menu for the meal. I sort of talked Mike into having lemon cake. Cecelia asked and he kept thinking and thinking, so I said, “Lemon cake”! Then he said Ham steak or Ham loaf. Neither Cecelia or I had ever made a Ham loaf, so Cecelia made an awesome Ham and cheese omelet. She has an interesting technique to finish the omelet by cooking on the stove top and finishing by putting the skillet under the broiler to get the top half done. I did tell Mike that I would make a ham loaf, later in the week. There was so much omelet, that when Edgar called to make a birthday greeting, that we invited him over for some.
We sat down and Mike opened his birthday cards. Mike’s Mom and Dad had a card with a couple of beagles on it. His sisters had the same good taste and found the same card with neat saying on it.
This is Mike’s favorite present. No she was not wrapped up in the box. She came into the house just like a regular person.
