Larry has a Winter birthday that we celebrated with a cook out. I dragged the grill just out of the garage and started cooking the sausages from the butcher in Michgan and and the local grocer. Larry and Cassie went shopping for whatever side dishes caught his eye.
The grill is on the other side of the snowbank. The neighbor had her lawn ornaments tuned on in the background
Here is the birthday boy checking out the progress of the sausages. Yes, he does like his meat well done.
Phil baked the birthday cake. He found the recipe in a magazine and decided to try a chocolate caramel chocolate layer cake. It was so tender and rich that it fell apart in his refrigerator. He brought the cake in a large bowl. It was sooooo good.
