Planning a Birthday Party and the Weekly Menu

Little Miss M is turning 2 years old tomorrow and we are ready to celebrate.  Little Miss M is the daughter of our very first exchange student who is from Russia and her fiancee who is from Mauritius.  


Isn't she lovely...........

When I was planning the menu for her party, Mama asked me if I would feature food from Mauritius.  I love learning of other cultures through their foods so I was all on board for planning this meal.  I will be sharing those recipes with you in the near future......that is, if they all turn out as delicious as they sound!

Today is going to be spent getting ready for the celebration tomorrow so we are just having soup and bread for dinner.  After the party, life gets quiet here again for a bit.  Don't forget to vote on Tuesday, this is a very important election and make sure you Thank a Veteran on Friday.  They have fought and continue to fight for the freedoms we have and the ability to exercise those freedoms with our vote.
