Glazed chocolate Christmas cake
My mom loves Cottage Inn pizza and, as she lives in Washington, DC, doesn't get to have it unless she's visiting us. Since tonight is the last night of her visit and we haven't squeezed it in yet, Cottage Inn it is. This is also a nice break from cooking as tonight is also the night we're celebrating our dog, C's, birthday. C was a rescue, so we don't know his actual birthday, only that he was about two when we got him last January 6. We wanted to celebrate with my mom, so the cake and presents have come one day early for our little Epiphany boy. C has had a rough adjustment, as we're his 8th home (yes, you read that correctly) and he is only just beginning to really believe he's our dog for good. Thus, it's a celebration of many joys and milestones, and pizza and cake (Did I forget to mention beer? Well, not for C.) seem appropriate for our feast. Happy third, C!

Prep Notes
I love delivery

J: "Even though the broccoli was a bit charred, this is still the ultimate interpretation of 'pizza'."
M: "You can't go wrong with pizza and beer."
L: "They really should open one in Silver Spring, MD."
C: "Cake? Where have you guys been hiding cake??!?!??"
