Yesterday was my husband's birthday, so I did a lot of cooking for him.  If you're interested in any of the recipes, let me know and I'll type them out for you.

For breakfast I made chocolate chip and cinnamon scones.

**Scones Recipe**
(modified from the Joy of Cooking)

preheat oven to 400
whisk together thoroughly:
- 2 c all purpose flour
- 1/3 c sugar
- 1 T baking powder
- 1/2 t salt
cut in using pastry blender:
- 6 T butter cut into small pieces
do NOT over mix - it should look like bread crumbs, not paste!
stir in:
- 1/2 c chocolate chips
whisk together and add all at once:
- 1 large egg
- 1/2 c heavy cream
mix together with a rubber spatula until all dry ingredients are moist.  Then get your hands in there in knead it a few times to form it into a ball.  Don't worry if it doesn't all stick together but try to get it mostly into one single ball.  Then turn it out onto an ungreased baking sheet and using your hands, form it into a 3/4 inch thick round.  Cut it into 8 wedges and brush the tops with some heavy cream.  Then brush them a second time.  Finally, sprinkle them with cinnamon and sugar.  Bake for about 15 min, until the tops are lightly golden, but before the bottoms turn dark and burn.

Lunch was grilled cheese sandwiches with a salad (butter lettuce, and black olives with homemade dressing) - sorry no pics

dijon balsamic vinaigrette:
- balsamic vinegar (2-3 tablespoons)
- 2 cloves minced garlic
- about a tsp of dijon mustard
- about a tsp honey
- salt and pepper to taste
- pinch of oregano
- pinch of thyme
mix together and drizzle in
- olive oil

For dinner we had seafood pasta (with shrimp, scallops and mahi mahi), chubble bread (so yummy!) and some sumer squash.

For dessert we had:

Strawberry daiquiris!


Homemade pound cake with cinnamon whipped cream, strawberries and raspberries.  Yum!!
