Weekly menu plan # 4 - A wonderful girl's 2nd birthday party

This week started off with a joint birthday party for S and two of her best buddies, who all turn two this month. My goodness, where did those two years go?

S requested an orange cake for her birthday, so we made this gluten free one and decorated it with orange segments. It didn't look as good as the recipe I took it from, since my oven blackens everything on top, but it received lots of compliments for its taste. And I was glad to stay away from white flour and food colouring.

  1. Since, our children are losing relationships due to over busy lifestyles of elders; it can be a great idea to throw a small family party at home to celebrate the birthday of a growing child. You can try cooking different types of food items at home, and make your child feel comfortable with the grandparents, parents, uncles and aunties. After all, teenage is the right time to starts understanding the value of relatives and family. So, just try using teenage birthday party food ideas, and get started with the arrangements.
