is my birthday. if i could have any birthday cake i wanted, i'd have this one, from smitten kitchen. i'd even make it myself.... i don't mind. i love.love.love a yellow cake with chocolate icing. instead i'll probably make this one for myself. it's good. i've made it before. and it's flourless. i've been eating no flour (or very very minimal) for the last few weeks and feel tremendously better when i do. flour just doesn't agree with me. i have more energy... my mid-afternoon slump is almost non-existent now. and i have fewer headaches. big plus.
and one would think that since i'm the boss i could give myself my birthday off. but alas, no. i'll be working. all day. but don't worry.... hubby made me breakfast. and hopefully we'll get in a birthday bikeride this evening. and we celebrated my birthday this weekend at my favorite sushi restaurant with some close friends. we had a great time.
