A birthday celebration has to have cake and ice cream, right? Wrong, we celebrated my husbands birthday with a main pasta dish with pesto, plates of steamed and raw veggies as sides and a low-fat shortbread with fresh peaches. I enjoyed the veggies and made some fresh peach juice for dessert. It was a day of temptations but as long as I didn’t let myself get hungry, I survived. The focus of the day was on the celebration and family time, not on the food. Won the weekly scrabble game which also made it a great day!
I just made the best fresh tomato gazpacho I’ve ever tasted. This is definitely a keeper.
