sometimes you need some sprinkles.
today is one of those days. sprinkles. and cakes. and waffles. and donuts.
yes, i did. all at once.
and no. it’s not anyone’s birthday at my house right now.
there has, however, been a revelation by uncle sam of another move to come. soon. this spring.
another, up and at ’em. loads of cardboard. packed trucks. stuff hauled. upheavals. changes. and more.
move #9, if you’re counting.
and so… grain-free birthday cake waffle donuts.
(ps. for the record, these would make an epic alternative to a birthday cake!)
