Happy birthday to my littlest imp….Life has not been the same since 11:50PM on July 16, 2010 and I wouldn’t change a thing.
I saved up my calories today because we went out to eat for birthday dinner. So glad I did! Lunch (for me) consisted of cupcake tasting. Ha! Does that count?
Breakfast: Scrambled eggs with a bit of parmesan and garlic, handful of gluten free tortilla chips and 3/4 cup of grapes. Coffee. Definitely coffee.
(This is by far the most bizarre purple hued picture ever.)
Lunch: Honestly, I was too busy feeding little people and attempting to create a new cupcake recipe to eat. Don’t worry, I made up for it by eating a cupcake fresh out of the oven. All in the name of recipe creation.
Dinner: (At a chain restaurant with a gluten free menu and remarkably, a knowledgeable server. joy!) Appetizer: chips and “queso blanco” (Not really a word in Spanish – just a melted white cheese with peppers, etc). Dinner: Wedge salad with Green Goddess dressing and a 4 ounce blackened sirloin. (I didn’t eat the potatoes in the photo…they were…ummm… strange texture and I passed.) Water with dinner and an Irish Whiskey (sans the non-gluten free canned whipping cream).
Dessert: After some evening games and joy, we sat down to some birthday cupcakes. (Whipped cream “frosting”) They were yummy and spongy. I think we’ve found a new recipe. My husband says they taste like a “soft French chiffon” …. I just think it tasted lovely. I don’t worry about the comparison – but it is helpful to have someone who can give better descriptions that I around when I’m trying to write things up!
Hope you all had a wonderful, gluten free Tuesday!
