December 8, 2016 – Birthday!

Today I start out with coffee cake especially made for me by our daughter for my birthday. It replicates the ones that we used to get our house when I was growing up from the Dugan man with his expandable case of wares. It is delicious.  The recipe she uses is from the Simply Recipes site and is called Swedish Coffee Bread (Tea Ring.) You can also find it at

For dinner we dine out with our friends, George and Karen. George has a birthday the day after mine so we always celebrate together. This year is pretty low key since George is recovering from Achilles tendon surgery. We go to a local place called Piatti’s and I have penne with merguez sausage.  It is good but I take most of it home.
