Dinner was carnitas, rice, and beans. The birthday cake was key lime cheesecake. It's a really simple cheesecake to make and the recipe is here. I cut back on the lime and if you can't find key limes in the market, regular limes are fine. I have made it with both and I don't think you can tell the difference.
While the carnitas was slow cooking in the crock pot, we glazed pots and loaded the kiln. Today is firing day which means new pots will be coming into the world on Sunday. Sort of like another birthday. I just might have to get another bottle of tequilla ;-)
