First off, I have to say THANK YOU to all my lovely readers and friends. I really enjoyed reading your comments and emails about getting glutened. It’s so interesting how many of us feel like a bother to our friends and family!! Needless to say, I am feeling better. Not 100% yet, but better every day.
Happy Birthday to Joan, my sister and my best friend :)
My sister Joan is an amazing person. She’s the type of sister that buys you yoga pants just because she bought herself a pair too. She’s incredibly caring and thoughtful. But she’s also hilarious. She’s a teacher, a wife, a friend, and the mother of Lil' Gluten Loves Me. I am thankful daily to have her in my life, and there is NO amount of appreciation and love that I could ever show her that would feel enough. Happy Birthday Joan! I love you :) Love, Sissie
I actually just got back in to town from visiting my sister for her birthday. On the drive to her house, while listening to NPR, I was introduced to an acapella group SONOS. I am obsessed with their rendition of White Winter Hymnal – found here. I love Fleet Foxes, but the girls’ voice is breathtaking!
Last night, my sister’s husband made a Spanish Cheesecake from this cookbook:
It’s a crustless cheesecake and the end result
was SUPER delicious!!
Creamy texture with the perfect amount of tart. Mmmmmm…glad I brought home a slice!
To wash it down, my sister and I halved one of these:
Cider – Trader Joe’s style! And it was actually very good! I’ve never been a huge fan of cider, but I liked this. It wasn’t overly sweet, and it had just the right amount of sparkle!
I had such a fun weekend, but I have to admit that this afternoon I’m feeling a bit deflated. I really wish I lived closer to my sister…and that I didn’t have to go to work tomorrow :)
BUT I do start training for my very first 5k this week!! More on that later ;)
