Time to renew promises to eat sensibly in order to lose weight, right?
Well, you'd better move on away from today's post as fast as your fingers can fly across the keyboard.
Yesterday I went to a birthday brunch at one of my sister's houses.
She is a fabulous cook and prepared a brunch to honor her husband's birthday!
Whoa doggie. Talk about a fabulous buffet.
The bagels looked fabulous:
Everything I tasted, and it was by no means a little of everything, was delicious.
Much of it was homemade by the "hostess with the mostess.
Here's her sour cream coffee cake was studded with a walnut/cinnamon streusel:
The fruit salad shown at the top of the post had luscious raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, melons, coconut and oh, it was too delicious for words.
There were banana muffins, too:
She also had an egg casserole with dried tomatoes that was quite tasty.
Shown right below is olive oil on the left and Lebanese zatar (a mixture of wonderful spices) on the right. Pita bread triangles are dipped into each. Yum!
The birthday cake came from the Cheesecake Factory and brought a new meaning to the word decadent.
Here's a close-up of a piece of the Godiva double chocolate cheesecake.
So if today was the start of a new diet, so sorry to tempt you with these photos.
However, I have to say, the birthday bash was quite delish.
It also was great inspiration to hit the treadmill.
I hope the birthday boy will have many more birthdays in the decades to come!
