On Birthdays and Food

As I've grown older, I've noticed that birthday celebrations tend to be focused a lot less on gifts and a lot more on food. I wonder if this is singular to the American food-obsessed culture or if it is the same way all over the world? Either way, yesterday proved to be an excellent survey of great food in LA. I started out with a breakfast of greek yogurt and homemade granola. Then, I met up with my Mom at Lemonade in Venice for some killer salads, orange-blood lemonade, and a chocolate cupcake. For dinner, we rode our bikes and longboards down the Strand to meet up with friends at El Gringo, a classic California Mexican joint. I ordered the Mexican pizza which was pure grub. All this was topped off with some amazing birthday confetti cupcakes made with love by my dear friend, Emily.

Thanks to all of YOU for the birthday wishes, yesterday. It was a fabulous day and I am one lucky girl.
