Eric's First Day of School

So Eric is finally a member of the working class! Here is Eric's first day of school picture. He had his first day at Drake today, and Abe, Rose, and I tried to make his day as special as possible. We made him monkey bread for breakfast that was super yummy. It was an Archer Farms mix, Target store brand rocks!

Of course we had to write him a special note for his lunch box.

Then during the day, Abe and Rose and I took a field trip. We went to a home brew store and scoped out the selection of beers. We came home with a dozen new beers that Eric had never tried. If a liquor store has 12 beers that Eric hasn't had, believe me, it is a good store! Anyway, we were excited for Daddy to have a beer with dinner.

Then for dinner we bought Daddy Alaskan King Crab legs. Eric loves crab legs, but I was a little apprehensive about cooking them. I used one of Emeril's recipes, Drunken King Crab Legs, and Eric said they were delicious! I even made the drawn butter for dipping! Finally we made Eric a cake for dessert. Abe was most excited about this. It was a yummy Chocolate Cherry Cake, which was so easy. This cake is awesome, because it has very few ingredients. The frosting is homemade, and the best part about it is you frost the cake while it is still warm, so it doesn't take forever to make this cake.

All in all, I think Eric had a great start to his new career. Yeah Eric, we are so proud of you!
