Souvik & I celebrated our (same day) birthday amidst numerous birthday wishes on phone & internet, as with our local friends, all wanting to know what cake was baking on that day (especially with the diet in the picture).
I baked a very easy orange cake with great results. Everyone who ate it assured me that it tasted great, while I resisted the temptation:
Souvik & I cut it together, with Bushra doing the honors of taking our picture.
Later, I skipped the diet for dinner, and we went out to our favourite French restaurant, La Badiane , for divine food. They changed their menu, especially the vegetarian plate, and we have only praises for them!
