Bright and Early: Me when I realized that today was pay day and I could get a non-fat, no-whip pumpkin spice latte today!
And you guys probably already knew it but…
it was another 3 shot day!
This week is going to go by SO fast because this Saturday is Parrish’s Birthday Celebration! Although his birthday isn’t until the 21st, we’ll be celebrating this weekend. And I’m so excited!! We have a big group going to dinner at a local restaurant called Milltown. :)
We actually started out this week by celebrating! Sunday night Parrish and I went to my parent’s house for a birthday dinner. My dad made gluten free fried shrimp (recipe soon) and fries! SOOOOO good! My family is incredibly supportive of my gluten intolerance. Even if I’m the only Celiac at the table, they always prepare the entire meal gluten free. (Minus the random biscuit flying around!)But I did volunteer to make the birthday cake: Chocolate Towers.
Chocolate Towers are just a fancy name for gluten free brownie stacks topped with chocolate butter cream icing!
I started with circles of Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Brownies. I cut the circles into two different sizes, so that the top circle is a bit smaller. Then I made chocolate butter cream to sandwich and top the towers.
I melted the butter cream bit so that it would drizzle. If you let it sit an hour before serving, it will harden.
Quality Control Bite :)
The towers were a hit! I heated each person’s serving because as most of us know, gluten free baked anything is always better warm! We served them with vanilla ice cream. Tasty!
Tonight is going to be a late night! We’re watching the Big Brother Finale and it’s on until 10pm!! Hopefully my bed time won’t get pushed too far back; I have to run in the morning! I’ve had a taste of the endorphins and I’m addicted! :)
