There is a big smile here after reading that.
Do like that it is Lili who notes who takes what jam for their toast.
I’m glad you manage to keep the hostile balance between Reed and Hayes over MACO vs. Tactical, it adds to the flavour of that third series of Enterprise.
I like the decoration idea and that Lili makes the effort to make it a vegan strawberry cake, so T’Pol can have some. I found it interesting that Chef felt the text was to formal and in fact Jonathan prefer the less formal writing as it show she remember he is an individual as well as the Captain.
Another enjoyable short story.
She understands that Archer is a person, first and foremost. Will is more interested in following the rules. Another way that they deviate. And yeah, she watches who likes what. It's her job, but it's also how she shows her interest.

Very sweet. In more ways than one. I like that Lili had a nice, basic, common sense aporoach; it backs up the thought that chefs and engineers share some delightfully common traits between them. I also liked Archer melting a little over her using his name, too.
The Xindi arc is, in particular in the beginning, loaded with everyone screaming into a single purpose. And while they had a job to do, they stopped being people in a lot of ways. I mean, seriously, who still gets a big cake and whatnot for their birthday by the time they hit 40? At least, not on so much of a regular basis. So it's a little silly, but it's the silly stuff and the sweet stuff and the human stuff that they're actually fighting for.
