Let Them Eat Cake!

Birthday Cake, that is! Today is Miss Mischief's 12th birthday. She is quite thrilled with her Cathy Cassidy book and her little sewing box with fabric and sewing paraphernalia, despite her father's determination that those things are 'boring'. He who does not sew or read for fun just shakes his head in disbelief and is thankful they share a love for food!

The vastly pared down version of a birthday party includes two favourite little friends joining us for an early lunch session. This week we went to the US at our dinner table. Today we'll be winging our way to China to partake in Miss Mischief's favourite banquet: Yum Cha. She's already decided she wants white bait, stuffed crispy yams, sui mai and spring rolls. After that we'll revert back to wild birthday fun with a trip to a park where they have a fantastic work off some of our lunch!!!

At dinner time we'll visit Greece. She has requested wraps ~ chicken, tzatziki, lettuce, tomato and whatever else we can find that suits. And then that birthday cake, which was being made at 11pm last night!

Happy birthday to Miss Mischief! Clearly she's a budding gourmet--she has great taste in food for a twelve-year-old (or anyone, for that matter). Hope it's a lovely day. Enjoy this last year before the teens begin!

Thank you Frances. I've printed out your message and prettied it up for her...she said to say 'thank you', with a big grin on her face. She thinks it's very special to have a personal note from one of her favourite authors. Truly a bookworm, that one!
