This post is going to be short and sweet, but full of birthday deliciousness. (It’s Tuesday night, and I really need to be planning for my Mythology class instead of writing this…)
My birthday was a few weekends ago, and last weekend was my dad’s. Needless to say, we’ve had a lot of food around here. It has not been anywhere near the healthiest food, but it has been some of the most delicious, to be sure. 🙂
I’ve been horrible about actually eating lunch on the weekends. It’s so much easier to just grab an apple and string cheese and call it good. That said, my actual lunches for school are boring, so I don’t have any photos to post.
For my birthday dinner, my mom made enchiladas. They were super good, as always.
For my dad’s birthday, I stuck with tradition and made pasties. While I made our family recipe (which includes beef) for my dad and grandma, I decided to make a vegetarian version for myself. When I have time (which will probably not be until January…ha), I’ll have to post the recipe, because it was definitely a winner!
I didn’t need cake for my birthday, as I knew I was going to make it for my dad’s, so on Saturday I baked up a double-decker chocolate cake using this recipe. (I doubled all the ingredients).
And that, in short, was What I Ate on my birthday and my dad’s. I’m linking this post up to Jenn’s weekly party, so head on over to her site and check it out!
Do you insist on certain dishes/meals when it’s your birthday?
Have you ever had an English/Cornish pasty?
What’s your favorite flavor cake? Can you guess what mine is? 🙂
Well, I’d better get back to work. Have a great day, everyone!
