Thank, you, thank you, thank you for the wonderful birthday messages you sent my way. Hearing from family and friends who love me was the greatest gift. It filled my heart with joy and made the day special. Having love all around me is what makes this grrl happy and joyful. And CAKE!
Before I was diagnosed with celiac I didn't care one way or the other for cake. It wasn't on the top of my "to have" dessert list and, in fact, desserts have never a big draw. BUT, on my birthday I want something special and the icon of a birthday celebration is cake! My very own lemon GF cupcake was the perfect thing to have for breakfast!
We had a delicious lunch of fish tacos at our favorite taqueria, Lonestar, but alas and alack, they do not have cake. SO, I made up for it at dinner with a piece of the best flourless chocolate ever! In my estimation it's the best cake ever!
Smith was poised to dive in as soon as I snapped the picture. Over indulgence on ones birthday does not count in the world of calories. Saturday I also had a delicious cheese cake and, on Sunday, another cupcake. The weekend was full of delightful yumminess, but better than food, my birthday was made up of friends who made the weekend memorable and special. Good friends are everything.
