Delightfully simple, yet rich with chocolate flavor, this cake made for an awesome ending to our anniversary dinner, which was this past Wednesday, Nov. 11th.
Because it was for just the two of us, I made the cakes in two, 6" cake pans and then froze one for a later time. Sprinkled with powdered sugar and served with vanilla ice cream, I couldn't have ordered nor bought a tastier dessert. Delicious!
Hubby and I have now been married 31 years. It doesn't seem possible. Wasn't it only yesterday that we were sitting in my parents' basement just getting to know each other? Him telling me I was cute; me telling him he was crazy. Bashful and shy... young and innocent...my how the years fly and people change.
Little known fact: I used to be a redhead. Until I was 5-6 years old my hair was strawberry blonde, leaning more toward the strawberry than the blonde. So it particularly touched me that hubby found this card for me. That was my hair color spot on!
We've been together since we were teenagers, living in different towns, but attending the same high school. Hubby likes to tell the story of how when he was a young boy he would go with his dad to a body shop located three houses down from where I grew up. He insists that he knew at a very young age that there was something magical about that street and he always felt "funny" when he was there. How sweet is that? Enjoy this rendition of "On The Street Where You Live" made popular by the musical My Fair Lady. It always reminds me of hubby's story and makes me all warm. fuzzy, loving and forgiving.
