It was my birthday on Sunday…on Father’s Day. I had to share my day. Unlike other people who have the whole day to themselves. Hmph! But it was good.

I started a bit off schedule. I was supposed to wake up at 4 am, but I forgot to turn my alarm on. I know, smart, huh? So I got up at 5:30ish am and started cooking. Ended up being brunch. I made Lemon Cupcakes, Scrambled Tofu, Blackberry Waffles, Chocolate Pudding Cake with Ganache Frosting (XXXXXXXX-TRA chocolaty!!!), and Pumpkin Cranberry Walnut Muffins.

It was chaotic in the kitchen, luckily my mom offered to help me out. (Usually my birthdays always end up really crappy and that’s how the day started). I made the lemon frosting wrong (I mixed everything together when it was actually supposed to be added one at a time and was dripping the lemon cupcake batter all over the place (I have no idea how that was happening because I’m extremely anal about uber clean). Then my mom had to calm me down because I started bawling all over the place. After that things started looking brighter (plus my best friend texted me to wish me a happy birthday). My Chocolate Pudding Cake kind of deflated…which didn’t make me too happy. I labeled it the Poop Cake. But it tasted spec-tac-u-lar!

After brunch my parents took me to Whimsic Alley (THE Harry Potter Store). It was freaking awesome!!! Then we went to the 3rd street promenade (Santa Monica) and wandered around a bit. And then they took me to California Vegan, which surprisingly was really good. I had Dim Sun, Pad Thai with Seitan, Brown Rice, Egg Roll, and Salad. My mom had the same thing as I did (my Dad didn’t order anything…) but she had Spicy Egg Plant with Soy Ch***en.

We came home and my best friend called me and said that she was home and then I lost service…crappy phones!!! So I went over to her house and stayed there the rest of the day.

I hope you all had a swell father’s day.

By the way, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows comes out in 1 month and 3 days, to be exact!

The End.

(for today)

Happy Belated Birthday! Your birthday cooking looks good, despite not living up to your expectations- I think Poop cake looks especially yummy. California Vegan sounds good too- will have to check it out next time I'm out in LA.
