Auberne's Raspberry Ricotta Stuffed Overnight Toast


Today is my Auberne`s 16th birthday. It seems to have gone by so fast.

"Sweetheart we are so proud of the woman if integrity you have become. You have the most giving spirit about you. You are kind and loving. You march to your own drum. I your own words 'I am not like any other teenager. I am weird and proud of it.'"

Auberne` Rose, you teach me everyday how to be more giving, to laugh at life and be a better me. Thank you and I love you to pieces xox 




Auberne` was lavished with lots of cash, a tea pot with a crown, a sailing ship and my vintage ring which I was given when I graduated. I had to share what Auberne` wanted for her breakfast in bed. French toast, raspberries, apple sausages and hot chocolate. Now I mean the kind of hot chocolate were you melt chocolate with heavy cream. Yummy and rich. Now this is a girl after my own heart. I created this French toast dish for her 16th birthday and share it with you xoxo

Happy Birthday to dear Auberne!
What a lovely and admirable compliment/comment from your family, Auberne!
You are cherished and special!
Hope you are still enjoying your 'job' at the library...I love mine and think of you often!
Obviously this is true of you:

"Somehow, not only for Christmas but all the long year through, the joy that you give to others is the joy that comes back to you.

"And the more you spend in blessing the poor and lonely and sad,
The more of your heart's possessing returns to you glad."
- John Greenleaf Whittier

Hope your day was lovely from start to finish!
