The main course was spaghetti - an excellent choice for the somewhat chilly night.
The sauce - tomato paste and crushed tomatoes, skillfully seasoned by my other brother and vegan accomplice - was addicting and abundant. I'd been avoiding wheat for a while, but nevertheless, this really hit the spot!
Deep, dark Creme Yvette went exceptionally well with the spaghetti. What the liqueur has to do with my birthday, I haven't a clue, but it's perfect, because the violets are going crazy right now. I finally had an excuse to pick some of them for the pictures!
Leftover bis*cake, crumbled and topped with some of the blackberries and some comb honey made for a memorable breakfast/brunch.
So. Another one bites the dust. But.
All in all, a good day.
