|Slumber party breakfast (August 2011)|
Anyways, the celebratory kick off was last weekend at the cottage, with a huge BBQ - actually, 3 nights of BBQ - and a delicious "bread cake" for Becca. Tonight we took Becca and her friends for dinner to the only Italian restaurant our children will eat at - Fellini's - because it tastes like Nonna's house. Then we went to see Harry Potter (my first exposure ever to the story or series and I'M A BELIEVER!!!) and now the kids are all playing guitar hero and talking about my now infamous slumber party breakfast - a take off on Mom's traditional Sunday morning brunch (minus the sardines).
There is nothing better than greeting a group of tweens and/or teens with a mess of belgian waffles, whipped cream and berries, pancakes, eggs and salsa, and fruit salad - all to give them enough energy to run around outside until lunchtime, when it all starts again :).
I am still waiting for my Beloved's request for our anniversary dinner, but Becca's put in her order for Tuesday...so stay tuned as birthday month continues to unfold....B'Tayavon and Buon Appetito!
