Today is Fabulous Fanny’s Birthday. A day that was always celebrated in some fun fashion. I remember for many years dad and I would make mom one of her favorite desserts, Cherry Icebox Pie or her Refrigerator Coconut Cake (recipe posted earlier). I also remember that you better not get her an appliance for a gift unless she explicitly requested like the year we got her the Cuisinart. One of the earliest gifts I gave her was a wall plaque of a spinning wheel, no real significance but it was all I could get at the corner drug store with the little money that I had in my piggy bank. I remember I did this all by myself and how she kept that plaque on the wall in her bedroom for years and years. Then there was the year, 1982, we got our first Old English Sheepdog (see picture)
Happy Birthday mom and to everyone else have a fabulous day!
