Happy Birthday to Fred!
Although I'm pretty certain he doesn't read my blog, I have to wish my #1 taste tester and #1 man a very Happy Birthday. I wish I were at home cooking him up a special birthday breakfast, but alas, I have to work so that I can buy those very special ingredients.
Fred has bravely taste tested hundreds and maybe even thousands of recipes over the past few years. He has made so many runs to the grocery store for me it is just crazy. He plans special culinary surprises for me. He is one heck of a cook himself and occassionally treats me to a lovely Fred-cooked dinner. He takes joy in finding culinary tools that make my heart go pitter patter. He is my own personal gardener, who respects the fact that I want no chemicals and pesticides on our foods. He does and is so much more, but this is the food blog, so I'm only listing some of his wonderfulness. For this I thank him.
It is so hard for me to find the words to describe the great things that are Fred. It is impossible to honor him properly on his special day. But in my heart, I am thankful for the day he was born and feel so lucky to be able to share another year with him.
Love and Chocolate!
