I apologize if you had any difficulty loading my blog yesterday. While I cannot explain the issues, I had them as well, which is also the reason I am behind on responding to your comments. I hate when things like this happen!
Luckily I was able to get into my site to write this post. I mean, imagine if I wasn’t able to show you what we ate yesterday for my son’s birthday?
So normally I make a special stack of birthday pancakes (click here to see last year’s birthday pancakes) but not this year. Ohhh no. As we discussed yesterday, I didn’t want to deal with the questions about what type of flour I used or if there was mashed banana in the batter so instead, I suggested we go out for a bagel store breakfast on the way to school.
Of course I had coffee and oatmeal when I woke up though, I can’t really wait very long to eat after waking up.
My son is more savory than me so telling him bagels meant an egg bagel with lox cream cheese plus some scrambled eggs. You know, the total opposite of what I would ever order.
I had a cup of coffee and then had another bowl of oatmeal (unpictured) after my run. I had wanted a fruit cup from the bagel store but they didn’t have any that I really liked. No watermelon or cantaloupe?! It was weird.
Here is how we know I properly raised a little foodie. My son requested The Cheesecake Factory’s corn chowder soup on his birthday a few months ago. The only problem is, The Cheesecake Factory only offers this soup on Monday’s menu.
We devised the plan, way back when, that I would pick it up special on Monday so that he could bring it to school on Tuesday (yesterday) in a thermos for his birthday lunch.
I know right, I am totally mother of the year.
I had a power bowl on a plate, per the usual lately. I can’t get enough roasted butternut squash.
I emotionally ate my computer issues in the afternoon with a few apples with peanut butter.
After soccer practice, we went to Vincent’s Clam Bar, which is becoming the birthday tradition.
We shared the fried zucchini and fried mozzarella, I had the zucchini linguine and he had what appears to be food covered in mozzarella cheese. Not really sure what but it looks like meatballs and some pastas. No idea but we loved every bite.
It’s a good thing that the birthday cake my son wanted matches my dessert desires.
Chocolate fudge layer cake. My heart is honestly racing still from the amount of chocolate I consumed last night but it was worth every bite.
As were these cookies. Have you heard of Schmackary’s?
The above box contained a crazy good variety of fresh baked cookies (like chocolate chip, chocolate explosion, funfetti, peanut butter after dark…) so many that I don’t even know which I liked more. I love an original chocolate chip but the chocolate explosion? Oh my goodness.
It’s a good thing we have a ton of cookies and some cake left to keep the birthday feeling alive for the rest of the week. I may need a bite or two if I experience any more site issues. So far so good today, fingers crossed!What we ate birthday edition #wiaw #birthday #cake #vincentsclambar #schmackarys #cookies #bagels Click To Tweet
