Last Sunday at lunch, we were all laughing about dates of actual birthdays . . .and we couldn't name everyone's actual date BECAUSE we celebrate all birthdays on Sundays at Grandmother's house. Everyone's birthday is on a Sunday . . .so we might know that Mark and George and Bill all celebrate in August . . .but on which Sunday will we celebrate? Does that even make sense or did you have to be a part of the actual discussion?
Well, what brought up the whole discussion was that Aunt Rebecca's birthday actually fell on a Sunday this year!!! So we celebrated on her actual birthday - a true rarity in this in-law family of mine. Rebecca is my sister-in-law - married to Mark's brother, Bill. Rebecca is allergic to latex and gluten and her diet is very limited but Grandmother will not allow that to deter her . . .she is going to find a cake that works . . . and can be eaten by the birthday person. Grandmother has a recipe for a crustless cheesecake that is delicious!!! Others in the family have actually requested this cheesecake for various occasions.
