party on, Wayne!

Mr M asked me to make him a mandarin orange cheesecake for his birthday yesterday.




The cake is now history but the celebrations continue. Boy13 had six of his best pals over today for movies and pizza.



The usual suspects arranged in descending order

I made two large sheet cakes and three huge square pizzas and within minutes they had washed it all down with Coke and Fanta and were begging for more. Where do those boys put it all?

While they were eating they watched two of our favourite movies - Wayne's World and Wayne's World 2 . Well, OK, there's no accounting for taste but our whole family enjoys both of these films. And I kind of have this thing for Mike Myers. I can't help it because 1) he's a brilliant comedian, 2) he's cute as a button, 3) he and I share a birthday - same day, same year, and 4) he's Canadian. Nuff said? Excellent.

"I think we'll go with a little 'Bohemian Rhapsody', gentlemen?"

Had I know there was cake, pizza and Wayne's World going on in your home, I'd have hopped a train and headed west!

I have a thing for Mike Myers too.

I hate to ask a silly question, but...are those seven "usual suspects" doing what they appear to be doing?

Dixie - Next time I'll let you know ahead of time! Did you know that Mike Myers is single again? Not that that would do either of us any good, but still...

Sal - In the middle of my living room?? Certainly not! But now that you mention it, they do kind of look like they could be up to no good. :-)

"Yeeeah, baby, yeaaaah!" *LOL*

So, which on's boy13 in the pic? Or are you not telling? :)

Go and watch the videos on my blog and see how much snow we've been getting in the past few days in Munich!

Elemm- he's the third from the left. I figured you must be buried under the snow by now. Is it ever going to end?

That cheesecake looks amazing. Will you share the recipe? Please?

We like So I Married an Ax Murderer although we only have it on video for some reason.

That cake looks GREAT. My husband was telling me about it the other day.. could you tell me how to make it?

I understand. I share a birthday with Chuck Norris. As a result, I've always had a little thing for him. :)

lilyb and lillian - I'd be happy to share the recipe - it's really easy, just one of those standard ones with Philadelphia cream cheese.

I can't believe I haven't seen So I Married an Ax Murderer. My husband would probably love it but I wonder if it would be too hard for him to understand with the Scottish accent.

Mr Fabulous - Chuck Norris doesn't turn my crank *at all* - entirely too much hair on his back! Eew. You may have him all to yourself. ;-)

The cheesecake .... sigh do you know, the Belgians don't do cheesecake and it's an all time favourite of mine.

Loved the Canadian thing ... despite not being one.

We're having a mix of snow, sunshine, sudden wind storm with snow stuff and then ... well, who knows today ... no snow cover.

Mm, cheesecake. I love it in all forms!

wandering woman - Germans do cheesecake completely different way from an "American cheesecake" but both versions are nice.

So far today we've had snow, sleet and hail with sunny periods. Thunderstorms are scheduled for later.

mar - cheesecake will cure anything that ails you. :-)

Expat - well, could anything be as good looking as P? :-) I'll post the recipe soon!

0_o Those young men appear to be urinating on your coffee table. German birthday party tradition?

WOW, looks like a lot of cooking was done in your household those days, and please do share the cheesecake recipe, my husband loves cheesecake!

I agree with Sal and Lisa ... a very naughty-looking pic ...


That cake looks yummy!

Ah, cheesecake. I can't make cheesecake in Greece, because they don't have graham crackers here! I don't know how to "fake" a graham cracker crust, either.

Cake, pizza, and Wayne's World sounds like a lot of fun.

I like easy cheesecake recipes--harder for me to screw up. My anniversary is this week so that would be the perfect excuse to try this one out.

There's only an occasional Scottish accent in Ax Murderer, mostly just when he's playing his "father".

So, just what ARE those boys doing, now that we hope they aren't doing what it looks like! I bet they're eye-balling the pizzas before they tackle them, right?

Your cooking/baking skills are just waaaay too advanced for me! All I can do is congratulate you!

Well, I think I just told them all to squish together so they'd all fit into the picture and it ended up looking like a bunch of 13 year old boys doing what 13 yr old boys do!

And no, as far as I know, peeing on the coffee table is not a German birthday tradition. :-)

Hee, hee, backs turned to protect the innocent. Sort of like the news, they can't show minor's faces, only other parts of the minors.

Wayne's World totally rocks.
