Part 4: It’s my birthday so I’ll eat what I want to

Every Thursday is “Girl’s Night” at my friend Ellen’s house. Ellen usually cooks, but tonight our friend Mahnaz made Indian food for dinner. She had taken a class on Indian cooking and wanted to test her skills. Here’s what was on the menu.

masala-2

Dal made with red lentils

Since it was my birthday, I brought dessert, which was a rainbow cake from Kauai Family Restaurant. The flavors are guava, passion fruit and mango. (For those keeping score, this was the third piece of cake I had today!)

This delicious dinner was a great end to a food-packed day. Happy birthday to me!

Part 2: It’s my birthday so I’ll eat what I want to

For lunch, my friend Lynn and I went to Dick’s Drive In. We both had a Dick’s Deluxe, fries and a Diet Coke. I also had an extra cheesburger. I know–gluttonous. But it’s my birthday!

After Dick’s, Lynn and I went to go pick up my birthday cake at Kauai Family Restaurant. While there, I bought a slice of haupia cake because it’s so good, and I wanted dessert.

Haupia cake is white cake with haupia coconut pudding between the layers, frosted with a gelatin whipped cream frosting, and topped with coconut.

Lynn hates coconut, but I insisted she try a bite of the cake, and she loved it. That’s how good Kauai Family cakes are.

It was a delicious lunch. Thanks, Lynn! This song is dedicated to you.
