Baby Iris and Desert Princess Celebrate Birthdays!
On Sunday afternoon, our family celebrated the birthdays of our two grand-daughters, Little Baby Iris who turned one on April 28th and Desert Princess who will be nine on May 5th, which is also Cinqo de Mayo. In way of presents, Desert Princess, received her first sewing machine, and Baby Iris, was welcomed to Wall Street, and opened her first investment account. For dishes, Grandma prepared one of our favorite deserts which is Pavlova, which was named after a famous ballerina. In turn, I prepared a medley of dishes, including Tabuli, Italian Caprese, Tomato Tuna Boats, and a special salsa in celebration of Mexican Independence Day. Photos of each dish are included with this blog.
In the days and weeks to come, it is my intent to post photos and share my many rich and fulfilling Arizona experiences. Hopefully, this blog will engender and create an interest on the part of the reader to know more about the diversity of the "Grand Canyon State" and possibly visit. (November 23rd, 2009)
