Birthday Cupcakes, Easter Gifts

Happy Birthday Eric! It was just my youngest brother's birthday, so I baked and cooked for him. Dark Chocolate Cake from scratch, filled with Peanut Butter Cups or Whoppers, (Malted Milk Balls), frosted with Peanut Butter Frosting, and
the end result was a box of cupcakes, enough for, one for each year of his life. He grinned ear to ear when we presented them to him. He said he was not taking them home. In order to set the table the big box had to be moved so he, eventually, did put them in his truck. I have a feeling he will be making a few stops on his way home to share.

For supper, he said he was cleaning out his freezer and found a bag of last springs native Rainbow Trout so, would I fix them? Of course!

I regret forgetting to grab the camera. Sorry, but I will tell you, they were delicious along side of homemade chicken tenders, bread dressing, cranberry sauce and Paula's Corn Salad...(thanks for that great recipe, Paula.)
After supper, we cleared the table for our usual card game of Golf. I lost in the last hand, which we always play blind...but what a nice evening with my little brother.

I've been keeping busy with ' little things,' as sis Cher suggests. I finished the handbags I made for a couple of my darling GrandLoves for Easter. Inside, they will find little wristlets to go with their purses.
BENNNN just said, " That's 'tupid!"
Grandma should have known better than to ask a little boy to model his girl cousin's wristlet...his Daddy didn't think it was too cute either....
thanks again, sweet, helpful, Ben.
So much for today. Thanks for stopping and listening.
