Busy happening have been going on here! My grandson "M" turned two years old and had a Mickey Mouse party at his other grandparents house this past weekend. Didn't we all look cute wearing our Mickey and Minnie ears? His big brother "L" helped open the gifts, and we all ate a delicious gluten free Mickey Mouse cake baked and decorated by my daughter-in-law's friend.
The next birthday was my son-in-law's, on Sunday! My daughter baked him a delicious cake. Doesn't it looked like their baby "J" also wanted to try a piece?
In between all this we celebrated St. Patrick's Day a little late, as my husband was in New York City for a week during the holiday, and I didn't want him to miss our annual celebration. We had the traditional boiled corned beef and cabbage (with red potatoes and carrots), Irish soda bread, and this year I added a whipped sweet potato topped turkey Shepard's Pie. I promise to put the recipe up for that next year, before St. Patrick's Day, as it was really delicious!
Can you believe it is almost Easter? Happy Passover to all my Jewish friends and readers! The fun cake above was made by my great niece, Rachel, for a prior Easter dinner. You can find the recipe here on the Taste of Home website. Rachel always makes fun desserts that all my great nieces and nephews would enjoy. I'll miss being with my extended Long Island family this holiday, but it will be wonderful being together with my children and grandchildren here at home in Colorado for the first time!
How are you celebrating the holiday this year? Let's hope for a beautiful sunny and mild day!
