We had a birthday party for my six year old daughters yesterday. I served proper party food – fat, sugar, and food colouring!
Ham and egg club sammies. I always make some of these, so that I have at least tried to serve something that is ‘good’ food. I use wheatmeal bread, not for health reasons, but because I think it tastes better. Alas, the children never eat them, but that leaves plenty for the adults.
For dessert, rainbow jelly, fruit and lolly kebabs, and meringues. The rainbow jelly needs to be made over two or three days, but it’s not difficult. The children always pick the fruit off the kebabs, and eat the sweets, but at least I have tried. Don’t try to make meringues unless you have an electric mixer (I love my Kenwood), but if you do, they are very easy, and the children love them.
Yum, yum, yum. There’s nothing quite like a room full of 18 children on a sugar-high.
