G's Birthday Food! 2014
Another two weeks and another birthday. My birthday was on the seventh, and G's was on Tuesday, two weeks later. And...GR's is on Feb. 12th, but then it will be birthday-quiet until July when I'm slammed with SR's, JK's, and my dad's, followed by my mom's August second. Whew!. But, I ramble. G gets to pick his birthday food, just like the Blessings, and the veteran readers of my blog will not be surprised by his dinner choice, yawn. But, he loves it, I love him, and so it's all good. He chose to have a quiet day at home after opening his pressies. Immediately afterwards, we ate the first half of cake, he had a second slice in the afternoon, and then we had more later. See the pics and the links below.
My Pineapple Upside Down Cake has become a huge hit for my family. As a matter of fact, we are heading over to my parents for dinner tonight to celebrate his birthday with them, and another one is baking in the oven as I type this. My mom has never had a vegan version of this cake and wanted to give it a try. Who are we to argue?
For dinner he wanted slow-cooked black-eyed peas, fried potatoes with onions and garlic, and cornbread. I made two types of cornbread: my Sweet Corn Muffins for the kiddos and I. I baked them in my doughnut pans for fun, and I baked his Ozark Cornbread in a star pan 'cause he's my star, aww.
Anyways, it was a nice day. Keep a lookout for another birthday post a couple of days after February 12th!
