Who ate cake?

Yesterday was my little sparkles 5th birthday!
She is so sweet...a true blessing in my life!

For her birthday I made this....

and I did NOT have any!!!! Not a lick of it even!!!!

Did I miss it or feel deprived???


I felt free!!!

Before the guests arrived I had a piece of leftover homemade Lasagna (made with brown rice pasta) so I would not be tempted, by being too hungry, to eat the chicken nuggets and fries that the party guests were eating.
After the party was over, the house tidied and the children in bed I treated myself to a cup of peppermint tea and a scoop of cocoa....Yummy!!!
Never tried it until tonight but it is a definite do over.


  1. YAY!! You did a great job!
    Happy Birthday to your little cutie!!


  2. Awesome!!! You did great! Today is my sweet girl's 10th birthday.

  3. You, my friend, are an inspiration! And I am SOOOO trying the cocoa/peppermint tea combo. :)

    AND I am soooo trying the brown rice lasagna the next time I make that... how are the noodles for that? You like?

    Way to go not even licking the icing or batter or cake.. you rock!

  4. Very smart! I use that strategy sometimes too, and it makes such a difference. Temptations are easier to face when your tummy is full!

  5. Happy belated birthday to your sweetie! You did fabulous! I love that you said you felt free!!! WTG!
