I survived May (5 birthday parties, one anniversary party, and Mother's Day) without getting too tempted by cake and such, but now it's June...We had a nice dinner for our own anniversary (12th for DH and I!) on Sunday, and I was pretty good (grilled tuna over gnocchi in a garlicky sauce, but I only had a couple of the gnocchi, salad, a half of a small piece of bread, wine).
But it's MY birthday next week, and though I don't want to be a total martyr, I also don't want to completely blow it! Any yummy ideas for a birthday-ish treat? I am not a huge cake fan, but I usually have some kind of really rich chocolate cake with buttery-frosting. I could easily skip cake if I had some other inspiring ideas that were more OP.
