Yes, indeed, I graced the world on this fine day! My family, as they do every year, had a wonderful party for me this past weekend. We all had a great time and ate lost of yummy food! I am told I am going out to breakfast and I am told there is something going on that involves dinner…. Woohooo!!

End of day epilogue

Today was a wonderful day! J, Indi, and I went out to breakfast to my favorite breakfast place: the Nosh Cafe which was wonderful as usual. I had a bagel with lox and J had the Spanish omlette/quiche:

Then off I went to school for work and class. I bought these fabulously colorful and cheerful cupcakes to share with my classmates:

My wonderful professor Dr. P seemed to enjoy the cupcakes and I could not resist taking a picture of his Dracula looking smile after he ate his first cupcake with the hot pink frosting!!!! Watch out for the crazy colored frosting!!!

My bday gift of choice from J was a homemade dinner. So I skipped my last two classes and came home to find him hard at work making a fantastic Persian meal. How impressive is that??? He said: “A Persian meal for a Persian.” haha!!! 🙂 🙂 Anyway, he made a rice dish from my Persian cookbook New Food of Life. I had actually never had this type of rice before, and to be honest it sounded a little odd to me when I first saw the recipe in the book. I am so glad that J made it because it was delicious. Anyway, it was like a Persian Paella and in the cookbook is it is called “Rice with Shrimp and Herbs.” He also made an herb kookoo, Persian chicken kabab, and two different types of dips, one with yogurt and shallots (mast-o-musir) and the other was a blend of herbs, walnuts, and white cheese. EVERYTHING was so amazing and delicious!

While we had dinner we listened to a CD which I received today as a gift. My wonderful friend Little Red Reading Hood surprised with me with a precious gift: a CD which is compiled with songs that he has written and sings himself in his native language which is Polish. And once the CD came to an end, we listened to it again because it was THAT GOOD! Anyway, more about the CD and Little Red Reading Hood will be shared in a later post as it deserves some attention!

And for dessert J bought some amazing tasting pastries from one of our favorite bakeries. I can’t remember the name of it but it is located on Crenshaw and Sepulveda in the same shopping center as Starbucks.

And last but not least, a picture of Indi. She is not allowed to beg for food while we eat, she can either hang out under the table or take a hike. Since she is such a good girl I shared some of the apples from the sweets with her after we were done eating. She actually loves apples and she is good at balancing a slice on her nose!!! AWWWW!!!

Well another Bday has come and gone and it was a wonderful day.

Thanks J for all the wonderful and loving things that you did today. You are the best prince charming ever and so lovable!!! 🙂
