Since three of the princesses (Princess Marian, Princess Pauline and Princess Me) of the royal family have birthdays during the month of March, I decided we deserve our own Perfectly Pink Princess Party! There was a lot of pink, a lot of tiaras, and a lot of princesses and princes in attendance. The menu was fit for royalty: An appetizer of cream cheese/salmon spread paired with crisp wheat crackers started our evening off on a tasty note. That was followed by pan-seared sea scallops, baked salmon with a hint of butter and lemon pepper, Panko coated talapia, oven-roasted spring vegetables with Hollindaise sauce, fresh spinach salad garnished with strawberries, walnuts and bleu cheese crumbles, light-as-a-feather oven fresh rolls, and tender new potatoes smothered with a creamy beschemel sauce accented with petite peas. Prince Jordan created an imperial masterpiece with his moist carrotcake topped by decadent cream cheese frosting. Prince Dave did most of the scullery work and was joined by Prince Christian in creating the regal spread. I hope these princes will accept my royal curtsey of gratitude for all of their labor since they performed many of the tasks which usually fall to the mere peasants. Prince Kimball reigned over the entire proceeding with great aplumb and dignity. Who would have expected any less from such an heir?
And hey! Who says you have to be a six-year-old to enjoy receiving the "royal princess treatment?" We were loving every moment of this rare chance to dust off the tiaras which bear the royal crown jewels and don them upon our perfectly coiffed royal heads. (Well, I'm quite sure all of us were loving it) . . .
