Happy 20th Birthday!

Today is the 20th anniversary since we met our our tiny "baby girl" weighing in at 1lb 14 oz., no heavier than two packages of butter.

3 Months Old
If you saw her today, you would never guess that she had a "rocky" start in life.  Reflecting back, I can only say that we are so fortunate to live in Canada and to have had access to the best of physicians and specialist.

We celebrated this milestone by going out for Sushi at Makimono Japanese Restaurant in Ajax. 

When I was 20, the most popular cuisine used to be Greek or Italian.  Today's youth seem to have a love affair with Asian cuisine.  My children were much more familiar with the various choices on the menu than I and knew exactly what they wanted to order.

 The food was very good and we left feeling quite full, but that didn't stop us from having a huge piece of Princess cake each when we got home.
Swedish Princess Cake

Princess Cake http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prinsesst%C3%A5rta  is a very traditional Swedish cake consisting of delicate sponge cake layered with raspberry jam, custard and whipped cream which is all topped with a layer of marzipan.  The trickiest part is to get the marzipan right, but practice makes better..
