Happy Fourth of July! I hope everyone has something fun on their agenda for the day.
My birthday was yesterday so I was really excited for work to end so I could go home and celebrate with Alex. My office lets people decide if they want a cake or not. Since I knew the Monday before the Fourth of July would be slow, I opted to get one as a pick me up for everyone. I picked out a strawberry shortcake and it was so good!
We had talked about going out to dinner, but I have a list of recipes I want to try so instead we opted to cook dinner at home together. Crispy onion chicken, Hasselback potatoes, roasted broccoli was the menu and it was tasty! I will share the recipes with you guys on Friday.
I had seen a recipe on Julie’s blog a few months ago for a chocolate icebox cake. It looked tasty so that’s what I made for cake last night. Alex and I agreed that it was good but I need a few adjustments next time. That’s typical for me when I try new recipes so now I just need another excuse for this cake 😉
Once we finished we cuddled up on the couch to watch Moana before bed. It was a low key night but it was just what I wanted.
Have a safe July Fourth!
