The Boy Who Lived

Do you know what today is? If you said Sunday, yes you are correct but that wasn’t the answer I was looking for. If you said that today is Harry Potter’s birthday, then not only are you correct but you are a geek like me. Yay for geeks! And for those who didn’t know, we geeks are slowly taking over the world.

I was thinking about creating a dessert just for his birthday but couldn’t come up with one. Instead here’s a milkshake I created for the Meadow Gold Below Zero Hero contest. It was inspired by the Harry Potter series and named after the owner of The Three Broomsticks, Madam Rosmerta.
