Oh February

February is a fabulous month. It consists of two of my favourite days of the year, my birthday and Valentine’s. Definite cause for celebration, unfortunately celebrations that cause weight gain (usually) but also convenient because they are two days apart and so only affect weigh in once. Last night, Mom made a fantastic meal in honour of my birthday. First course was tomato and artichoke bruschetta on olive baguette. Following was a spinach salad with corn and lobster (I LOVE lobster, it is my favourite food and so is a staple in birthday or special dinners for me.) Main course was a bacon wrapped beef steak (not sure if Mom got the filet mignon or the tenderloin or something else), garlic mashed potatoes and asparagus. For dessert, we had homemade turtle cheesecake. My dad was the genius behind dessert, Mom apparently doesn’t make cheesecake because she believed that since it was her favourite, Dad should learn to make the most wonderful cheesecake to impress her. And Dad did not disappoint with this one. Chocolate cookie and pecan crust, rich cheesecake with toffee bits, chocolate chips and pecans mixed in and topped with caramel sauce, chocolate sauce and whole Turtle chocolates. So yummy! Good thing that weigh in is on Friday 🙂

Speaking of which, being sick last week really helped me melt pounds, check the loss page, I’m back down to 25lbs gone!
