We had prosciutto wrapped shrimp, butternut squash mac & cheez, beet salad on a stick (an invention I made that I think is genius, a big ol cheese plate with salami and olives and of course this year donuts galore! Joshua loves donuts, so I decided to do that instead of cake this year. It ended up taking about 9 hours to complete 4 different donuts with 3 different types of dough. I learned a lot along the way and mostly enjoyed it. His favorite was still his go to- pink with rainbow sprinkles. I also made a chocolate frosted with cocoa nibs, bourbon basil blueberry, and sugar & cardamom coated filled with lemon curd. It was fun to watch everyone try to pick donuts and see which they liked best. We didn't end up with very many left over.
I also made a taco piñata, his other favorite food, and filled it with chocolates and mini (plastic) bottles of liquor. I only made it with masking tape but it took about 12 people to finally crack it open. My lunch hour piñata making skills were stronger than I realized.
Joshua had a really great time and we finally headed to bed around 1:30am. Then on Sunday I'm pretty sure I spent the entire day on the couch barely able to move:)
