No Calorie Birthday Cake…

Tony celebrated another birthday this week and I decided to do something different this year. We both don’t eat cake because it’s so fattening. Tony will sometimes, but I haven’t had a piece of cake in about four years. And every year for the past twenty years I’ve been buying a birthday cake and taking a spoonful, and then throwing it away three or four days later.

And I hate to waste food more than anything in the world. Besides, we both stopped making a big thing out of birthdays a while ago. So this was my alternative.

 
 

My Own Lame Food Photos…

Just to be fair with regard to the post I wrote earlier this week about bad food photos, here’s one of mine. As you can see, I’m no food stylist.

Sunday is pasta, ALWAYS. Tony and I are Italian and that’s just the rule. Period.

Sometimes it’s homemade pasta. In this case, it’s gnocchi in a brown butter sauce with sage. As you can see from this awful photo I took myself, I even elevated the uncooked pasta on a Waterford crystal bowl and it still looks terrible.

This is why I don’t post food photos.
