What about a birthday cake? I already had my birthday dessert Friday, at Tutta Bella. This is my third year of having Tutta Bella’s tiramisu as my “birthday cake,” and it a tradition I plan to continue. (Please note…I didn’t eat this all myself…it’s meant to serve two fairly generously or four quite sparingly.)
- The first year, I had barely scratched the surface of all the science prerequisites I had to take before applying to grad school. We stopped by Tutta to pick up a to-go order of tiramisu on our way home from our 6-hour Saturday biology class and lab (a heck of a way to spend a birthday, I tell ya).
- The second year, I was taking my second term of biochemistry and trying to finish up my graduate school application.
- This year, I’m staring down the barrel of a zillion papers, projects and presentations…in my second term of grad school. What a difference two years makes! Oh, and this year, my tiramisu was free, thanks to a birthday dessert coupon I received for being on Tutta’s e-mail list. The waiter even put a candle in it and sang “Happy Birthday.” So sweet!
