For the past few years, Trevor and Logan have been making increasingly fancy desserts every time their Scout troop goes camping. They've made all sorts of things, from scratch, that one would not normally associate with A) camping; or B) teenage boys. But they outdid themselves in December. They had access to the professional kitchen in the lodge at Camp Herms, so they cooked a New Orleans-inspired dinner for the whole troop. Jambalaya. Sweet potato fries. Beignets. All from scratch. To say it was a hit is an understatement.

I wasn't on the trip, so I am very grateful to Steve for taking photos. Not only of the boys, but of his bowl of jambalaya as well. And I'm doubly appreciative that Steve packed home leftovers so I could try it too. Trevor and Logan are great cooks - the food was delicious!
Speaking of Steve, today is his birthday. The first time I celebrated his birthday with him, he was turning 27 and we'd been dating for about five months. This year, he's 48 and we've been married for 19 years. Time flies when you're having fun! Happy birthday, Steve. I love you!
