My birthday weekend has come and gone. I ate some good food, opened gifts and had quality family time. Oh! I even managed to see a movie–The Amazing Spiderman. It was…ok. Lots of action, some suspense and no girly, mushy, lovey, dovey romance junk, so that’s good. I even got to indulge in my favorite concrete creation of vanilla custard, Oreo, brownies and cherry juice (courtesy of my hubby’s genius) at Andy’s.
As for the gifts, here’s a quick little roundup of some fun things I got…
A dehydrator!!!! We’re getting into a raw food diet in our household and upon further research, I’ve discovered dehydrators are used in a LOT of recipes. Unfortunately, this one gets a little too hot to be considered “raw” so I’m getting another new one! (and yes, I do see the irony in posting about our new raw diet on my dessert blog). Oh and a new cookie spatula! Very exciting since mine went missing a couple months ago. Yes, these are the things I get excited about.
Fun little mug and some Russell Stover raspberry cheesecake filled chocolates…yum.
Ice cream books!! I am so excited about these. I’ve had a huge urge to make my own ice cream the past couple of months and cannot WAIT to try out some of these recipes.
Technically not food but how could I not share these with a name like Pink Sugar? This is my favorite perfume/body wash/lotion ever. I get compliments on it every time.
And thanks to my in-laws and parents, I’ll be purchasing a bigger, badder food processor in the near future so no picture of that yet, but soon, very soon.
It was truly a great weekend and I wish I could do it all over again….every weekend! Haha. I’m blessed to have such great family and friends to celebrate with and thankful for all the love they showed me!
