It was my 22nd birthday on Tuesday. The night before G took me to get a burger, fries, and a shake at Blue Moon Burgers. My burger was huge! (as you can see from the picture) It was called The Code Blue and had two hamburger patties, cheese, lots of bacon, Blue Moon Sauce, onions and peanut butter! It sounds like a weird combination but somehow the onions and peanut butter balanced out perfectly. I also had sweet potato fries and a strawberry milkshake. It was so good! The burger had a gluten-free brioche bun that was so good I wouldn't have know it was gluten-free if I hadn't specified three times that everything needed to be gluten-free.
Then on my birthday I worked from 9 until 1, then went to Trophy Cupcake on my way home to get a gluten-free red velvet cupcake. Then I came home and baked myself a birthday cake. I used Bob's Red Mill gluten-free chocolate cake mix and it turned out so moist and delicious. Everyone loved it and even N, who said he isn't a cake person but would one bite, ate five bites. After that I just hung out with my friends and then they gave me a "birthday card" they got me. It was a cardboard cutout of my favorite Doctor from Doctor Who, Matt Smith! My housemates all signed the back of it. It's both like a really amazing gift and a prank, because before I leaned it against the wall I would see it out of the corner of my eye and get startled because I thought there was someone in my room. I can also use it for additional necklace storage later on, if I need it. And what better place for The Doctor than by my outer space art?!
All in all it was a great birthday.
Do you watch Doctor Who? Who's your favorite Doctor?
