This was my first time catering a party - my own 9th birthday party! The menu was pretty typical of a kids birthday party, a garden salad, sausages, chicken skewers, noodle salad (my own recipe - 2 min noodles mixed with mayo, sour cream, peas and cheese - it's actually really yummy!) and no 9th Birthday Party would be complete without duck liver pate in vol au vents w a green olive to garnish.
My mum helped me make the pate and, needless to say, my guests steered clear of them. Even when their parents came to pick them up, I offered them some and I think only one brave parent gave them a go.
Mum and I had the best dinner that night.
