Birthday Celebrations – Sarah & Maggie!

Our family enjoyed celebrating Sarah’s birthday and Maggie’s birthday this past week! We usually enjoy a special breakfast and a favourite dinner meal as part of our celebration.

IMG_9200.jpgSarah requested a buffet breakfast, so the family enjoyed homemade cinnamon rolls and muffins, hard boiled eggs, toasted English muffins and bagels, and hand dipped fresh strawberries. For supper, Sarah requested a turkey dinner, so we enjoyed roasted turkey with stuffing and homemade turkey gravy, mashed potatoes, corn pudding, homemade rolls, and sweet potato casserole. We couldn’t find the sweet peas, so we were missing that! Iain made homemade lemonade to enjoy with the meal. Mommy and Daddy enjoyed a pleasant Pinot Noir, as well.

For supper, Maggie requested a Filipino meal we call mikki which is a savoury chicken stir fry with carrots, cabbage, scallions, garlic, and pancit canton or “Chinese noodles,” served with white rice. Very delicious.
