Gardening, Cooking and Decorating on the Prairie of Kansas

Welcome to Linderhof, our 1920's home on the prairie, where there's usually something in the oven, flowers in the garden for tabletops and herbs in the garden for cooking. Where, when company comes, the teapot is always on and there are cookies and cakes to share in the larder.

A Happy Birthday!

Last weekend was my birthday
As you get older, I feel you should go from
birth "days"
birth "weeks"

And I did!

Five wonderful celebrations
A dinner and lunches
All ending with dessert!

From a white layer cake with sprinkles and "Happy Birthday"
at a luncheon given by our birthday lunch group

To a free slice of lemon cake
at a birthday luncheon at Vivilore in Independence, Missouri

To a wonderful nut tart at my birthday dinner
at Celine Tio's restaurant, Julian's

To a free slice of Tres Leche Cake
at The Depot in Joplin, Missouri

To a favorite dessert, Creme Brûlée
at the birthday lunch I shared with my broth
at one of my favorite KC restaurants, EBT

Oh and I did have a great birthday
over and over and over again!

It's Monday and I'm sharing my birthday desserts with Judith at Lavender Cottage for Mosaic Monday.

You sure know how to stretch a birthday celebration out Martha, and all with delectable desserts you didn't have to make.
Happy Birthday!
Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday.

Happy Birthday! I like your idea of celebrating. Mine was the 1st and I always celebrate from Thanksgiving to New Year's. :) These desserts are fabulous!
