Birthday Party

Birthday cake is somewhat overrated... who wants birthday cake when you can eat dirt. Right?

Actually, these ARE birthday cake. Well, birthday parfait anyway. Fudge brownie, french vanilla icecream, a gummie worm, crushed Oreo cookies, and a mint sprig from the garden make a perfect garden party parfait. They were yummy, included all of the necessary birthday cake things (like cake and icecream) and were just a heck of a lot of fun.

Food table... there was this and chicken, garden burgers and hamburgers from the grill. Simple, but wonderful backyard food. The punch is raspberry lemonade with 7-up, mint leaves and frozen blueberries.

Birthday kids "cakes"... A large star brownie, topped with a scoop of icecream, a mint sprig, an Oreo and the oh so necessary candle.
