Leanne's Birthday

Leanne celebrated her 9th birthday last Saturday. She wanted a birthday party with a few of her little friends. A few turned out to be more than 20 overly active and loud 9 years-old. So thankful to the helping hands of the sister, Keshia and brothers Don and Bryan. The boys did a good job in organising some hilarious games to keep them occupied and entertained.

Couldn't keep her fingers off the super-moist chocolate cake.


It was stress-free where food was concerned.
Don and Leanne made dozens of tuna sandwiches in the morning.
Fruits jelly was done the day before.
A big pot of bolognese sauce was kept bubbling over the stove.
All I did was churning out these grilled chicken wings, fried fish balls and pasta all through the party.
The most useful lesson I learnt long ago about doing kids' party food is to do quantity and not variety.
Have just a few of their favourites in sizable amount.
And don't bother serving any vegetables unless you can disguise them (like the pureed carrots and pumpkins I had in the bolognese sauce).
