Today at 8.34am Tiarnán turned 5. Such excitement, he suddenly had a super strenght that only a 5 year old and definitely not a 4 year old could have and as we sang Happy Birthday he displayed his new "strenght" by doing cart wheels across the kitchen floor. Don't you just love the enthusiasm that children have for all things new and how every day is potentially a new adventure!!
Tiarnán is a great man for food. He's constantly wondering about his next meal. Most of his memories are food related; if we went to visit someone 2 years ago he'll remember whatever he had to eat there. Food is a huge part of our daily life and myself and the boys regularly sit on the sofa and comb through cookery books in search of new recipes. However Tiarnán is the keenest "taster" in our house. It is always a pleasure to cook for someone who appreciates the effort and Tiarnán certainly appreciates his food!! Since we had his party with his school friends last week today was made special for Tiarnán by what extra treats he could enjoy. After dinner he ordered an ice cream filled pancake-a good choice, one I would pick myself! I used the recipe I have posted for Pancake Tuesday, it's quick and easy to make and the effort is always worth lots of kisses from the birthday boy!!!
