SJ's birthday "if only..."

Oh SJ, what's with having your birthday fall on a Tuesday (and during my busiest week at work)? What's with that? If only you could have scheduled it for a weekend or something, I could have made you something decadent to celebrate, like this:

(grasshopper bars: creme de menthe, chocolate and sinful deliciousness)


And I wouldn't have given them to you in a glass dish with the knife still in it. No, I would have wrapped them up nicely, like this:



And, if I had the time like I usually have on the weekends, I could have bought a funny card, written something funny in it and put it with the grasshopper bars, like this:



And then you could have put them into your fridge to keep cold until you ready to eat them, which would look sort of like this:



No, wait. Actually, it would look exactly like that. Or, if you stepped back, like this:


Check your fridge when you get home, SJ. Because no one should be without alcohol and chocolate on their special day. Happy Birthday, my friend! Hope it's a good one.

SJ: Please thank j for giving me permission to sneak into your house. I felt like a burglar (but the type of burglar that leaves decadent desserts rather than taking anything) (which, come to think of it, if those burglars exist, I kind of hope one finds my house). Oh, and thank Baillie for not eating me when I broke in.

HAHAHA!

This was awesome. And how did you get Bailey to pose so nicely? Did you offer him the contents of my messy refridgerator? Where everyone can now see is filled with chocolate, wine, champagne and pepto bismol? and jello pudding?

I almost didn't post this photo because I'm sure I wouldn't want anyone to see what the inside of my fridge looks like either. But Bailey looked good... and I thought it was especially appropriate that one of the items in your refrigerator is a huge block of chocolate. That right there is exactly why you and I are friends.

two blocks. besides the one on the plate, there's a giant block of milk chocolate.

i swear these are ingredients for me to practice my chocolate curls for cupcakes. i don't just carve off hunks to eat at random.

except maybe just once. or perhaps twice.

Andy said...

KAT, your Bailey looks so much better behaved than mine.

Oh well. Happy birthday, SJ. Please share the chocolate with me. Thanks.

sj said...

Andy- that's *MY* bailey! KAT broke into my house to leave me dessert!

And thank you all for my well wishes. Yay for birthdays!!

Happy birthday SJ!!! You have the best friend ever. If I lived closer (sigh) I would have been waiting for you at home with martinis. But that may have been a little creepy and freaked you out. But then the martinis would have made you feel better!

sj said...

HA!

Thank you all. I do have the most amazing friends....

M, that would freak me out a bit. But I'd quickly get over it, as I always do get over *anything*, with alcohol and chocolate.

Happy Birthday, SJ!!

KAT, my birthday is October 4 and I think it's on a Sunday, so you could plan a little impromptu road trip to Southwestern PA.... no? alright. Looks like Wal-mart cupcakes for me. :-)

sj said...

as it so happens, sam, i'm going to be in southwestern penn (lancasterish) in october....

Summer said...

You must tell my husband that....and give him the recipe.

Thanks!
