Matt is 30!

Matt had a big birthday yesterday - he turned 30!!!

I took him out for dinner to a place we'd never been, called Michael, in Winnetka. We had a fabulous 3 course meal and enjoyed a night out together. Our friends Dave and Courtney came over to babysit while Will and their baby Noah slept. Noah and Will had matching hats, and Matt got a picture on his (new!) iphone...unfortunately it was before he realized it had a flash, and thus the grainy picture!

After dinner we came back and enjoyed cake and coffee with our friends. I made a flourless chocolate cake, which is one of Matt's favorites. It's great because I didn't have to make any substitutions - it is naturally gluten-free. It was SO good! I found the recipe in Real Simple. I didn't have a springform pan, so I made it in a pie plate. It didn't look as pretty, but it tasted delicious. I served it with fresh whipped cream, which helped cut down on some of the richness.

Happy Birthday Babe! I love you very much!!!
