Yummy weekend, filled with birthdays and birthday cakes !
Breakfast is always the same : pumpkin pancakes, almond butter and half a banana. Big cup of black coffee. Pancakes were made fresh Saturday morning. I make a big batch and freeze them. They last me all week.
I made a very yummy lunch. The recipe was Cauliflower rice, from the 21 Day Sugar Detox cookbook. I used curry instead of the spices they recommended, but it came out great and VERY easy to make. Grate the cauliflower, cooked in coconut oil, with a ton of curry and cilantro, onions and garlic. My husband and daughter loved it. Had it with roasted butternut squash covered in cinnamon and salmon. Actually had this meal twice – I always make enough for leftovers.
Had half a piece of cheese cake. Believe it or not, you can get fantastic cheesecake in Paris ! There is a small bakery called “She’s Cake”, a two minute walk from my hairdresser. www.shescake.fr. They have a ton of choices, but I picked cappuccino.
Also went out to lunch for my birthday at one of my favorite restaurants. Risotto and sea bass with a nice glass of Chablis. Forgot to take a picture of the appetizer that I split with my daughter and dessert, Profiteroles (pastry puffs filled with vanilla ice cream and covered in hot chocolate) !
Birthday weekend, yes, I had two big desserts and loved every minute of it !
What is your favorite dessert ? Do you save it for special occasions ?
