How I Now Do Sunday Funday

October 8th, 2013 · No Comments

I can’t drink, so I’ll have my fun with delicious, decadent desserts! Ed came over on Sunday to cheer on the Lions against my Packers. He brought beer for himself and his famous Baked Escape s’mores bars for me. The Packers stomped the Lions, Ed stomped out, and I made off with a whole pan of s’mores. Good Sunday, all around! Good Monday, too, when I invented a dessert called warmed s’mores a la mode. YUMYUMYUM!

If you want to get your hands on these delicious s’mores bars (made with marshmallow fluff and Hershey’s milk chocolate sandwiched between two layers of graham cookie), you’ll have to go online for now. Ed/The Baked Escape were at the Edgewater Farmers Market all summer, but it’s done now. Starting in December he’ll be at the Indoor Farmer & Artisan Food Market in Evanston. Individual bars at the markets sell for $3 each, or you can order a whole pan for $20 via the Baked Escape website.

… or as fun as it can be with virgin bloody marys. My birthday + first Sunday of the NFL regular season + great friends is still Sunday Funday, regardless. Too bad the Bears won and the Packers lost to the 49ers, though!

Time for presents. Caroline and Rory had lots of help from the other kids at the party.

I can’t believe Rory can be a year old already, but this past weekend we celebrated his first birthday! Danny’s friend owns a cute little restaurant in Forest Park called Amelia’s and closed it down for the afternoon for the party. I was sort of dreading going to Forest Park, but it only took us about 20 minutes to get there from our house! The party was a fun mix of family and a bunch of our friends. Rory was not into the cake at all, but he seemed to like the opening of presents. Well, I think he liked the paper the best.

After the party we went to Danny and Caroline’s house in Oak Park to hang out some more. Somebody had to drink all the leftover beer and it might as well be us. And Ed! Rory missed his nap because of the party and somehow stayed awake and happy long into the night. And he did eat a bit of cake once the pressure was off and he was seated comfortably in his high chair at home.

Happy birthday, Rory!
