No 25: the Cake

Tuesday, February 3, 2009

The first birthday I celebrated with John as a couple, I visited his parent's home in Mid Cities, TX. I landed in the early afternoon and John had scheduled a cocktail party where I would meet everyone of significance in his life ever that evening. No big deal, really.

What I didn't know was that John had planned the perfect "Welcome to Texas" party, including margaritas, watermelon-basil mojitos (one of my favorite summer cocktails), Shiner Boch and a red velvet cake. He told me later that he knew he'd fallen in love with me when he was searching looking for red velvet cake recipes.

So of course, when our big day comes, we'll be serving a Southern classic which means the world to this Northern girl.
