Birthday Dinner, semi-paleo style!

Source: Jessica Diamond
Saturday was my birthday.  I'm the big 33 now.  It's not a huge deal for me - I'm at that age where it's just another year gone.  I have other things to worry about than my age, thank you!  ;-)

Since I had the kids that weekend, I decided to make a nice birthday dinner to celebrate. The menu included:

  • Hamburger Patties (no buns) - I added lots of veggies to the patties to stretch the meat over a couple days.
  • Homemade French Fries fried in coconut oil. - Yum!  A seriously special treat for all of us since it takes a time to make and there's a oily mess to clean up afterwards.  
  • Cantaloupe
  • Steamed Cauliflower with Ghee (clarified butter)
I didn't want to go through the hassle (or expense) of  a gluten-free cake, so instead we had gluten-free brownies.  I had found the mix on the Target clearance rack a few months ago and squirrelled 2 away for "a special occasion.  Well, 33rd birthday is a special occasion!  I topped it off with some lightly sugared meringue (whipped egg whites) which was just delish!  Loved the brownies...we polished them off Sunday night while watching Clifford the Big Red Dog on PBS.

So, all in all, a good birthday!  ;-)
