An absence in the neighbourhood!

It's that time of year again...the Neighbour's birthday. We laid out the Birthday Princess banner (most recently worn by The Fix-it Guy on his birthday - sorry, no photo) and the bread of choice was her favourite, corn bread....but where was the Birthday Princess? Nowhere to be seen, that's where! The banner sat forlorn and abandoned, the cornbread got scarfed down by everyone except The Neighbour, and the very mild (as in not-spicy) three bean soup was enjoyed by all...all except The Neighbour.

Never fear though. She did not fall down her stairs or trip over one of her cats, she simply spent the day on a hike with a friend. And I did manage to save her both soup, and one piece of cornbread.

We had a very nice time in spite of her absence and The Sous Chef brought a bunch of her friends from Uni, so it was something like a party (with soup instead of beer). We had a full house, and even spilled out onto the porch - a very nice day indeed.

And I still have the Birthday Princess banner for the next princess...I believe that might just be The Sous Chef (she's already "ordered" her cake - she wants a vanilla one like last year).

Have a great week everyone!

I hope you saved at least one bowl for The Neighbor!
