Time to Celebrate!


As my followers know, I like to celebrate the milestones of my blog with a little cake. I checked the other day to see if I was anywhere near a milestone number. I was at 348 followers. Close but no cigar as they say. So I waited…

Finally the day arrived! 350 followers. Time to make a cake. I chose to make a “healthy” cake. It would be a flourless chocolate cake. Instead of flour, the recipe called for almond meal. The cake was a single layer eight inch with powdered sugar sprinkled on top. With Thanksgiving right around the corner, I was all for having a lower carb version of a celebration cake. My family, however, had other ideas…

The husband was let-down by the frosting-less cake. My daughter agreed with him. Neither thought my “healthy” cake was any healthier and my husband set out to remedy the situation. His solution was to add a dalop of raspberry jam on top. My daughter followed suit. I was more than happy with my heavily-sprinkled powdered sugar topping.

In the end, we all enjoyed the celebration. I asked my husband when I should set the next milestone. He thought 360 might be a good number. I guess he doesn’t want to wait too long for another cake. LOL. Next time, I guess I will top the cake with some frosting.

A shout-out to all my followers. Thanks for following my blog. I hope that you are still enjoying Another Day With Julie. I love to hear your comments.

As always, Find Time to Celebrate!
