Skipped the Birthday Cake at Grandma’s

big birthday cake

Giving up sugar for Lent has been no problem…until today.  Today we celebrated Nadine’s birthday at Grandma’s house and she is, hands down, the best cake baker around.  She made carrot cake for Nadine, which sounds healthy, but there was, I’m sure, a ton of sugar in the cake, especially in the frosting.  And then there’s the ice cream accompaniment.  Good grief, I’m salivating just thinking about it!  But alas, I said “no”, and watched everyone else devour their deserts.  Fortunately giving up wine was not part of my Lent agreement, so I enjoyed a nice big glass of red wine as my desert.  I’m really not suffering too much…
