Okay, so you may want to just stop reading now.
No, really. Stop.

As you might recall, I like a big fuss over my birthday.
Or, rather, I appreciate it if a big fuss is made.

Most mornings I kind of dread breakfast.
Not eating it, really. Deciding what to eat.
Part of the reason I enjoy blogging is that I get to try new dishes all of the time. And with breakfast, well, I get a little bored.

Until now. … Well, for at least a week or so. ;) Read the rest of this entry »
