VeganMoFo: Happy Birthday To Me!
Hello! Welcome to the VEGANMOFO! Vegan Month of Food that is! For the whole of October I'll be blogging about vegan food as much as possible to spread the word that vegan food is delicious and worth talking about. There will be a ton of action from the blogosphere so to keep up with it all, bookmark this public RSS feed!
Today is my 33rd birthday and it was a great one. I came into work and got lovely cards and a beautiful birthday cake that my boss made for me. It's apple-walnut and looks like a giant apple fritter! It was soooo delicious and I'm happy to enjoy it for the next few days. Hope it lasts that long!
We sampled some pieces at work so here it is photographed after I got home.
Moist and delicious with chunks of apples covered in a sticky sweet glaze!
When I got home, I got wonderful gifts and cards from my parents and my inlaws. My husband presented me with a sentimental card that made me cry, a stash of gifts (Vicar of Dibley boxset and books about tea and spices!) and he cooked a lovely dinner!
Spaghetti Al'Arrabiata from The Mediterranean Vegan cookbook with olives and vegan sausage. Red wine and bread made it all complete. It was a lovely lovely lovely birthday and I feel so loved.
