Turmeric Cauliflower Broccoli Chicken

This past weekend was so beautiful in Oregon, but one of my favorite things was talking to my daughter at college on Sunday! It was Abby’s 21st birthday!

It’s hard to believe that 21 years have come and gone, and 20 of those years my mom has been gone. Abby was a bright spot in her life when mom had cancer. What baby wouldn’t make a person smile? (big smile).

It seems like yesterday, we were eating Buttermilk Cake with Maple Bacon Glaze for her 18th birthday!

Abby celebrated with her friends, and we’ll celebrate next time we are together as a family!

Happy 21st Abby! (And so cute, 21 years ago!)
