A Birthday Celebration
The children woke to the savory smell of onions browning for a potato skillet with extra fancy bagels in honor of our daughter who was turning 15. Given any opportunity to go out on the town, invite friends for a party, play games or watch a movie, she chose to have a family party. She said "My family really are my best friends." So we stayed home most of the day. The younger children went shopping for gifts while I baked a Hummingbird Cake (delicious banana cake base), made pork fried rice and steamed carrots and broccoli. With an extra large helium balloon wishing a Happy Birthday! in the center of the table the festivity was complete. We made a great memory.
