Maya's 2nd Birthday

Maya's 2nd Birthday Party was on Saturday.  We had lots of family and friends over, and that means lots of food.  Having worked all week, the menu had to be something super simple, with minimal prep time.  The menu combined both Maya's Indian and Caucasian heritage.  There was Chicken Curry with Potatoes, Lentil and Spinach Curry, Shepherd's Pie, and Betty's Famous Green Salad.  I served appetizers beforehand using Elle's New England Kitchen's (http://www.ellesnewenglandkitchen.com/) recipe for her Chevre and Dried Fruit Spread.  The table was bare and after opening presents, everyone was ready for birthday cake and Auntie M's marshmallow salad.  Happy 2nd Birthday Maya Rosie!
