Rogan's Birthday in Collage
He decided on a Zoo theme for his birthday and prepared some activities and party games for us to do during the day.
It was a very busy day for all of us as we had decided to try a change from our 'Party Bags' we have had as standard for our birthdays for many years in accordance with our Grain 'n' Sugar FREE lifestyle we have been living. I will post the recipes separately.
Currently I am not sure this will work long tern but am still pondering the effort v's results!
This meant replacing the party bags with some other special food. So our day was quite busy with preparing three different items along with the regular birthday food. Thus it was quite late when we had our tickets ready to present to the 'zoo owner' aka Rogan for admittance to the wonders he had prepared.
However Rogan had requested as his main present a kitten of his own which he had fallen in love with and so this was given to him. A happier boy you could not imagine, and his surprise when we gave him an MP3 player as well.
I loved making this beehive cake and it is one of my all time favourite cakes.
For dinner he requested: kebabs, cauliflower with cheese, broccoli and 'slater potatoes'.
Breakfast was buckwheat pancakes with cream and peaches (my current favourite breakfast) By thee way buckwheat is not a grain for those who do not know, I didn't until recently :)
So here ends the first of our May birthdays and we have two more to go.
I love being able to spend these happy birthdays with our children.
Blessings to you and your homes,
