Just for a fun change of pace, I thought I’d share all of the lovely eating that ensued on my birthday yesterday. It’s an illustration of me eating exactly what I wanted, and reveling in every delicious minute.
Breakfast: Whole wheat sour cream pancakes drizzled with pure maple syrup.
Mid-morning: Fluffernutter Nutella cupcake lovingly made by my dear friend Karlyn. Moist peanut butter cake filled with Nutella and frosted with Marshmallow Fluff. Absolutely as ooey gooey and delicious as it sounds.
Lunch out at a local favorite, Pagliacci Pizza, because no birthday of mine is quite right without pizza. Salad with raspberry dressing and one large slice of pie.

Dinner at my favorite restaurant in the Queen Anne neighborhood of Seattle: The 5 Spot, an upscale diner-type that serves fabulous quality, always tasty, meals. I’ve tried so many items on the menu and have loved every single one. I started with a house salad, and then ordered precisely what I was craving, The Longhorn Burger, made from big country Painted Hills ground chuck with roasted Anaheim pepper, bacon, pepper jack cheese & frizzled onions. Served with ancho chili dusted french fries.
Dessert: Classic cheesecake. Plus a hot pink candle.
Altogether, just delightful. I slept well.
