And for dessert we had my favorite Ice Box "Cheese Cake" from My Sweet Vegan. I made a double batch so that it was a 10" instead of a 6". Everyone loved it and yes I did make my own birthday dessert. There is even a bit left in the freezer. Jill and I had some with lunch today.
I also made the Apple Cinnamon ice cream from Vice Cream and so far this is my least favorite recipe from that book. The kids ate it but they'll eat anything sweet. We didn't care much for it.
The day before my birthday my in-laws took me out to breakfast at Rancho's. We had a really nice relaxing time. I made out like a bandit on the gifts and for the first time the kids were old enough to pick me out cards and stuff. It was super cute and they were very proud. Ramsey had me wear a #1 Mom sticker all day. Both kids also picked me out a vegan candy bar to put in their card envelope.
I had a lovely weekend. And Christy, you're still older.
