I promise. This is the last about Elliot's birthday (well, at least until next weekend when Hilary throws him another birthday bash while her mom is visiting!). But here I am, it's a rainy Sunday evening and I am still in my pajamas... I repeat: I AM STILL IN MY PAJAMAS! Celebrating and visitors and overeating have come to an end, and today I have just rested. Lots of playing on the floor and some sewing for Elliot and not much more. A perfect way to end the party.
But there is one more thing I wanted to share that I hope we make our new tradition. One of the most fun parts of his birthday weekend at the beach was that the menu--for the whole weekend!-- was designed entirely around his favorite foods. Here it is. Elliot's birthday menu:
Friday Happy Hour: homemade hummus with zucchini sticks and crackers
Friday Dinner: homemade pizza with tomato, zucchini and goat cheese
Saturday Breakfast: oatmeal pancakes and cantaloupe
Saturday Lunch: almond butter and jelly sandwiches, strawberries, pirates booty and pirate corn stix
Saturday Birthday Treat: vegan banana cupcakes with vegan banana frosting
Saturday Dinner: sweet potato chicken enchiladas and chips and guacamole
Sunday Breakfast: baby zucchini cakes and scrambled eggs
Mmmmm... Elliot sure does know how to eat. My birthday is next in September. I better start planning the menu now!
