In journalistic terms, this is known as "burying the lede" ;)
The salad was a result, due in no small part, to the birthday cake that was consumed in the late afternoon. Lots and lots of cake. So much cake in fact, that there was nap involved afterwards. That was followed by a brisk three mile walk which did nothing to lessen the need for stretchy pants.
The cake (vanilla with strawberries) was adapted out of the "More Magnolia" cookbook -- subbing out the soft tofu for the eggs. It works if you let it bake about 5-10 minutes longer than the recipe indicates...
