Mia's Mexican Fiesta

What a way to spend a birthday!  Mia Flowers and 12 of her very best friends gathered together Saturday afternoon for a cooking lesson to celebrate her 9th birthday.

The afternoon began with all the kids sequestered in the family room decorating their chef hats and aprons.  Nice job everyone!

Then we headed to the kitchen for some cooking.

The theme of the party was a Mexican Fiesta, which was perfect for the rainbow of colorful fruits and veggies we were about to prepare.  And there was one little guy particularly happy about spicy food!

The recipes included Really Good Salsa, Make Your Own Tacos & Burritos, and Fresh Fruit Tart with Nut Crust.  Everyone enjoyed creating their own little fruit tart masterpieces from bananas, kiwis, strawberries, blueberries. 

Then we followed with some home made tacos.  It was a fiesta filled with fun, good food and friends.

Happy Birthday Mia!!
