Today is my half birthday. Happy half birthday to me! The only reason I know this is because my uncle’s birthday is today. Happy birthday to my uncle!
Still, I decided to buy myself a cake to celebrate my half birthday. I was craving ice cream cake and today seemed like the perfect excuse to consume some.
Judge me if you will. My sister already did when I couldn’t take her call because I was buying said half-birthday cake.
In six months I’ll be a quarter century old. I’m just going think about that for a minute.
And because I shared that photo of my fancy Dairy Queen cake, I may as well share with you some other photos of eats I’ve had lately. I’m also linking up with Jenn at Peas and Crayons for What I Ate Wednesday. Head over to her blog to read more from people who think posting photos of your food is perfectly normal (like me).
The real star of the show was the crispy parmesan garlic endamame, which I recommend you make immediately.
I realize this photo looks like a deranged apple, but it’s actually a stuffed pepper that I made in the Crock Pot. I originally started following a recipe but it turned into me throwing a bunch of leftover stuff from my cupboards and fridge into the stuffing. Refried beans, black beans, corn, brown rice, tomatoes, crushed tomatoes, spices, jalapeno and cheese. And probably more stuff that I forget now. Either way, these were awesome.
An open-faced Eggplant Parmesan Hero. This was OK, a nice twist on a regular vegetarian sandwich. With roasted brussels sprouts on the side because they’re my fave.
Dan texted me today to say he had bought me some fresh “b-sprouts” at the market and I was like, THAT is why I’m marrying this man.
