Food Glorious Food!

Hi Friends!

Now this is a great use of my son’s nap time. Back to the blog!  I know that I’ve been away a little while.    Well anyways, I’m here and that’s all that matters  🙂

1st Birthday planning continues…..

As I decide the menu for my boys big day… I’m excited about all of the ideas that come to my head, but then I realize all the work and time it will take to make each recipe.

This party is one month away!

The date and time are set, invites are out, guests have RSVP. We are having a gathering of about 25 close family and friends at our home. The menu will be brunch food, but the theme of the party is still to be determined.

Last week I went to check out a great party store in our area and they had tons of themes to choose from. The ones that stood out to me were “Thomas”, “Winnie the Pooh”, or just a generic “1st Birthday”. I am leaning towards Thomas because my son loves this large colorful “Thomas and Friends” book that he spends quite a bit of time reading and pointing to the pictures saying, “that” and identifying the birds and the water and even the banana in the picture- hehe, it’s such a pleasure to watch him as he keeps growing and learning. He is such a blessing to us. Is he really a year old in just a few short weeks?  Wow. How life has changed.  Amazing how precious each moment is. Life is such a gift.

Thomas is one of the books that holds his interest the longest and he LOVES books… that’s gotta say something!

WHAT SHALL WE EAT?

Now for the menu- I’m thinking lots of mini personal portions. Easy to grab, mingle, laugh, play, and eat.

Some ideas are :

  • Mini chocolate chip pancakes
  • Cookie cutter grilled cheese
  • Carrot and zucchini muffins with cream cheese icing.
  • Fruit skewers
  • Sweet potato fries
  • Veggies and dip

I am so excited about this yummy yummy looking recipe from the fabulous Bakerella website!

Here is one more Yum Yum Yummy looking and healthy I might add, recipe from the great Weelicious website.

Looks something like this..~!  Let’s get those veggies into the kids- when the kids are happy, the parents are happy, and when the parents are happy- everyone is happY!

Have any more suggestions for me??  Please let me know!  Can’t wait to hear.
