New Year's Birthday

VM is lucky that her birthday falls on a holiday because that means there's always plenty of time to celebrate (sorry, OD; that's just the way the cookie crumbles).


This year we did a Boston Creme-esque pancake breakfast to celebrate.


Our family's favorite pancake recipe from Vegan with a Vengeance schmeared with Rigoni di Asiago's Nocciolata Dairy Free Hazelnut & Cocoa Spread (vegan nutella) and dolloped with So Delicious coco whip and ample maple syrup.


89 helped with setting the table.

Then ate more than her fair share of pancakes.

This put us in a food coma until dinner, which was takeout Ethiopian food because VM refuses to cook for her own birthday. This is kind of a downer because she's the best cook in the family, but who can complain about Ethiopian food? Not us.


Certainly not her.

For dessert, Peaceful Provisions donuts in our current fave flaves: rainbow and cannoli because I masterfully plan ahead for all contingencies.

Happy Bday, VM! And happy new year to all; let's get ready to stand up for ourselves and those around us...beginning now!

As Jeannette Rankin told to a journalist re: if she had her life to relive, she said she'd, "do it all again,” adding, “But this time, I'd be nastier.”



    I wonder if anyone got itchy from those pancakes ?

  2. omg those last 2 photos of 89!! And now I'm craving Bunna. Haven't been there in too long!

    1. No Bunna! You need Jersey Ethiopian food and we'll play games and do shots and get full of GREAT Ethiopian food!


Have you got something to say? It would be so nice to hear from you!
