Boys Birthday's, Veggie 'Chicken' & Kids Baking

I love birthday months! Well, and so do my kids of course- our son is turning 7 next week. We are headed out of town this weekend to see family for little party #1 then coming home to have little party #2 on his real birthday.

I love my son!
Jordan is one of a kind and so very special and yes all mom's think that is their kid- and its true :) He is a kid that never has a list for his birthday or christmas- is happy with anything, everything or nothing. You'd think he was shy until he opens up to you- then this singing, break-dancing incredibly smart little boy uncovers. He doesn't like new situations, new people or being the center of attention. He does best when he knows what's happening next. He loves animals and always makes sure his best doggie friend Rusty is taken care of. He loves his sister more than anything and always willing to give her half of whatever he has or give her a turn when its really his turn. He is kind-hearted. He may be 7 but sometimes I swear he's 17- smart and all grown up. He loves Star Wars and anything Lego's so that's the b-day theme he picked.

A few things I am working on for the party....a b-day banner, a star wars pillow (present) and star wars sticks for the brownies...

In our meatless journey we have splurged and let the kids have chicken nuggets a few times- I've been on the lookout for a good 'veggie' substitute that I can make. Over the weekend I tried a stuffing/spinach 'chicken' nugget- but you can use any veggie really and any shape- Balls seemed the easiest- then served with ketchup just like nuggets- they were a hit! Super easy, quick and 15 min to bake and they were done! Served with some mac n cheese and apples and it was a great meatless kids meal!

Although usually it is our son who wants to help cook and is always in the kitchen, our daughter decided to make 'french toast' cupcakes for a treat and let her brother help mix too!

It was nice to see them working hard together! As I snapped pics and supervised! :)
