Its a tradition for each person in our family to pick their favorite meal and cake and I will make it for them on their Birthday. They love this tradition and look forward to it!
It will be months until their birthdays, and our dinner conversation will be all the kids taking turns telling me their Birthday dinner requests. Its so funny and reminds me how food is so important to us, even at a young age.
Recently my oldest daughter was voicing to me what she wanted for her birthday dinner. She decided she wants Mexican Roasted Potatoes and Spicy Lime Chickpea Tacos. Yes, its obvious, she’s my Mexican food girl, but not my cake girl.
She’s ok with the cake part, but definitely not the icing! We both like more of a semi-sweet dessert. I told her she didn’t have to pick a cake, she could have whatever she wants. We agreed that something fruit filled would be a great choice. Who’s to say one can’t have a dessert like this Rustic Peach Galette or berry cobbler for a birthday cake? We both love the sweet and tartness of the berries or fruit, paired with the flakiness of a good homemade crust. We would both agree its the perfect dessert!
A few days ago a friend gifted me with something more valuable than gold……fresh fruit and veggies from their land! Blackberries, raspberries, squash, cucumbers, and lots and lots of peaches. I know what you’re thinking, you wish you knew her…….I hope you have someone like her in your life that so generously gives the good stuff, and if you don’t, I hope they’re on their way……
What did I do with this abundance of peaches? Well, when life gives you peaches make a peach pie, or in this case a peach galette. And that what I did. It turned out perfectly sweet with a touch of tartness, and….. its in the running to be Aubrey’s next birthday “cake”.
