Besides three months of no exercise and stress eating, (always a healthy combination) endless vacations, and my parents' cooking -
Summer season is birthday season at the That Girl household.
Ahem. Mr. Squishy is now The Big One, and Little Prince is The Gigantically Huge Scary Big Number Five. True story.
For the good of the relatives - and your eye buds - I give you
Mr. Squishy got a chocolate concoction with strawberry fudge filling. He liked it. So did I.
Little Prince wanted STRAWBERRY CAKE, MOM, WITH BLUE FROSTING. STRAWBERRIES, MOM, WITH BLUE DON'T FORGET. His wish was my command - I invented it using a combination of yogurt, crushed berries and strawberry jello - plus the normal cake stuff (flour, sugar, butter, etc.) It was amazing and it's a bloomin' shame I didn't write down the recipe. (Let it be known, however, that strawberry cake with cream cheese frosting is absolutely divine.)
And of course my cute kids. Because they're cute. And I love them.
