DS's birthday on Saturday and we are just having a bit of an open house in the afternoon, so it will mostly be adults, and I don't know what to make - or cheat and buy?
Would a couple of cakes (one chocolate and birthday-ish, one apple or lemon drizzle maybe?) and something like home made sausage rolls do the job or is that too boring?
Last year I did a bit of a buffet with cheese, tuna, salad rolls, bowls of crisps, fresh fruit etc and it was mostly ignored because of cooing over DS but I don't want to go too far in the other direction either.
Whatever I do parents and ILs will probably judge badly anyway
Actually that is not a bad idea. I suppose I wanted to think that DS might eat something substantial as he will be hyped up and doubt he'd eat anything resembling dinner after everyone leaves but a couple of sandwiches won't hurt instead of anything cooked, will it?
DP makes lovely scones, and I can do a cake for DS. Big pot of tea, et voila!
It's weird, I obsessed about pate SO much during pregnancy - well DS is 2 on Sat and I've probably eaten it three times since he was born! Although now you've mentioned it I may have to go and get some! I'll eat a chunk on your behalf
