Birthday Eats & Treats
It was my birthday last week, and I wanted to have something really yummy for a cake. In the past, I've tried all kinds of cakes and pies for my birthday, and haven't been super excited about any of them until I discovered.... Cocoa Butter Cake! This is a fabulous recipe that tastes very similar to chocolate cake....yes, CHOCOLATE cake. :) When I first tasted the cake my mom had made, my first reaction was to say, "That's chocolate cake!" and was a little worried it wasn't completely SCD-legal! But cocoa butter is simply the fat from cocoa beans, so it's perfectly legal. It's also chock-full of antioxidants!
I enjoyed being taken out by my guys to Mimi's where I got a chicken breast topped with flavorful handmade guacamole, grilled onions, with lettuce and tomatoes...yum!
Jim had stopped and plucked some blossoms off of a tree for me on the way home from work, and the boys each made a card - what a sweet way to remember the blessings of this year. I'm so thankful for my wonderful family and the great health and good food I enjoy on the SCD!
