Madhumati’s 3rd Birthday!

Today is really my little girl’s birthday.  Since we have celebrated her birthday quite a number of times already, we decided to keep it simple and just stick to cake with the four of us. I made my kids’ favorite, a carob brownie cake. I must have packed the birthday candles so we lit incense instead. She seemed pretty happy with the cake and the kids made a thorough mess of things. Honestly, we have been so busy that if it wasn’t for my mom reminding me, I probably would have forgotten it was her actual birthday. My son didn’t, however, and managed to put us on the spot by asking us where Madhumati’s gifts were. Ummm…she’ll get them when we move to Alachua. Let’s see who will forget first, the kids or me and my husband.

Carob Brownie Cake

Mix up ingredients. Bake 350 for 20 min or until done

1 ½ c sugar
¼ c butter or oil
½ c good carob powder
2 tbspn buttermilk or yogurt

Our friend, Advaita, also stopped by today. He was wearing his Sabjimata Human Made shirt. Smart man. He is leaving today to join the Warped Tour, where he promises to wear the shirt every day (he’ll wash it at night). I don’t think I could find a bigger billboard!
