Pradyot's Second Birthday & Weekly Menu Plan

Last week our little boy turned two. Since it was in the middle of the week, we had a quite breakfast celebration at home 

and later in the day we took a big cake for his friends and teachers at the daycare. A simple Vanilla cake with Vanilla Frosting.. all from the store, just as they had specified from the daycare.  The kids loved it and we did too... 

With that in mind I had prepared a simple Vanilla cake with Cool Whip frosting for the party that we had arranged on Saturday. 

The cake did not look brilliant but it tasted good... the M&M and gum balls did a good job of hiding all the icing imperfections.. so it wasn't all that bad :) but what turned out really good were these Whole Wheat Sugar Cookies...

these Whole Wheat Star Cheese Crackers...

and the Mashed Potato Croquettes which I forgot to photograph... They looked attractive and tasted really good. However there weren't many littles to enjoy them :(  We had invited Pradyot's classmates from the daycare for a play-date... Had hung a few balloons and a birthday banner on the wall to get them a little excited. But unfortunately none of his friends could make it. So it was just us, our family friend, the Nayaks and a table of little treats. I won't lie, at first I was disappointed by the fact that no one turned up.. but looking back i think it wasn't so bad. The Nayaks have two sons and the boys did enjoy themselves choo-chooing the trains, rolling down the bean bag, playing with the balloons and grabbing a snack from the table every now and then. Since all three were constantly on the move, we couldn't take any photographs containing the three in a single frame. Also after a while we stopped bothering about photographs. Everyone simply felt at home and it was nice to spend an afternoon with friends and toddler-approved snacks :)  

All in all we had a nice time and I guess the little one enjoyed the party too...

I intend to update you with all the recipes over the week... for now here is this week's menu at Ma Niche...
