Vegan Mofo: My Birthday, Part One

I like to stretch out my birthday celebrations for as long as possible. Though my actual birthday falls on October 16th, I've been celebrating all month long, especially this past weekend. Today, I went to my mom and dad's house in Arkansas for a little birthday family gathering. My mom made me some badass Chocolate Peanut Butter Surprise Cupcakes:

Yes, those are Christmas cupcake wrappers ... she ran out of regular ones. But who cares? After all, these babies were stuffed with a peanut butter cream cheese filling! They were so good, my grandpa ate four of them!

My Granny was also there, and she brought me a Pineapple Pie:

She invented this for my cookbook, and I'm so glad she did. Crushed pineapple meets walnuts and buttery goodness inside a flaky crust. Delish! It's very similar to her coconut pie, but with pineapple instead.

I had a party with my friends on Friday night (the actual birthday), but there's a ton of pictures to sort through. So I'm saving that for tomorrow night's post. I really need to get to bed early tonight as I have a long day ahead of me at work tomorrow. Be sure to check back though because the birthday party was filled with colorful hair and delicious goodies!
