Curtie’s 13th Birthday Party

Yesterday we celebrated Curtie’s birthday. After Amanda saw C’s hat from last year, she wanted to contribute party hats. Unfortunately Phineas didn’t want to wear his.

After photos, we played ball (see our facebook page for photo), then the boys had rice and hard-boiled egg cakes topped with 14 carrot candles (1 for good luck).

Dinner Last Night:
Millet Salad with Sun-dried Tomatoes, Kale and Beans. This was just ok. I love all the ingredients so I expected it to be better. The problem might have been that I ignored the recipe and didn’t cool off the millet as much as I should have. *UPDATE: This was better cold the next day for lunch.
