Feliz Cumpleaños!

 Jeff had a birthday yesterday and last night we celebrated with a Mexican fiesta. Our potter friend and neighbor Phil joined us for the fun. The evening got started with a virtual toast, shared on facebook ,with Jeff's friends from the MunGyeong chasabal festival. Since some of them live on the other side of the world, in a different time zone, they toasted with tea. We chose to enjoy some good tequilla.

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 ;-)


  1. happy birthday, key lime cheesecake, omg

    1. Linda, I think the key lime cheesecake could be easily adapted to gluten free. The only change would be the graham cracker crust.

  2. Happy Birthday, great celebratory choices. More pots too!

  3. another birthday, haha, so true! best wishes to the birthday boy!
