For your amazement
the cake that Squidette baked and decorated for her father.
And the meal that Little Squid made (with some assistance), also for his father.
"Wild" rice salad and stuffed portobello mushrooms. (Little Squid made the salad, including chopping all the ingredients and pushing the right buttons on the rice cooker. The mushrooms were purchased already prepared and just needed to be heated.)
Now, time to wake Squidette and hit the road to Rhinebeck!
