happy birthday

April 28, 2012

Today is my sister’s 25th birthday!!! And since I can’t spend the whole day with her, I thought I’d start the day off in style…with birthday pancakes in honor of the birthday girl!

While it would have made sense to make her  this very delicious breakfast, I was unable to be in London this morning so the partying will have to wait until tonight. I made these pancakes (sans protein powder) and filled/ topped them with raspberry Greek yoghurt. Soooo gooood! And then I garnished them with anything that screams “birthdaaaay”: 2 kinds of sprinkles, gummy bears and the usual (chia seeds and desiccated coconut).

Plans for today include a gym session and a bit of studying before I head to London for celebratory drinks and dinner followed by a round of bowling!


Have a great weekend everyone!!! I hope the weather is better than here, wherever you are. Well, it can’t really be worse!

      Happy Birthday to you too!!!! I’ll take any opportunity to garnish my food with gummy bears and sprinkles even though my older brother made fun of me. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

      When she read the post in the morning she actually asked her boyfriend whether she could also have a gummy bear breakfast. I think the would have like the pancakes!
