A Birthday Dinner

I have so many big things to share...in time. So much is happening over here at the Smith homestead that is keeping me away from the blog world and more fully engaged in pursuing life dreams. Not a bad thing at all.
I'll keep the big things at bay for a while longer and instead share a couple of recipes and a recent discovery.

Canaan turned 8 years old last week and he requested the Luau Salad (ala Cheesecake Factory) and a Malted Milk Ball Cake.
The recipes can be found here and here

My recent discovery was that of my grandmother's pocket watch necklace. I inherited a few pieces of her jewelry when she passed away over 20 years ago and most pieces I have kept tucked away. I was going through some things this week and found those precious pieces she left for me. One of them being this fantastic long necklace with an antique watch on it. I have been wearing it around everywhere lately and just love, love, love it.
