Anyone who tells you how fun it is to have twins, let me tell you speaking from one who has twins, it’s not as fun as it seems. And I should know, I have twins and an older child, and now that my older one is and adult and the twins are teens, I can honestly say that it was easier to deal with a single child than with twin teens. They can’t agree on anything – and I mean anything! They bicker non-stop. They have their own set of friends with no overlap whatsoever. They have two unique interests and hobbies. They hate that they share a birthday – I mean seriously? I tell them “You are twins! Hello! That’s what twins means, you share a birthday?” The only saving grace is that they were born 30 minutes apart which means technically they could say they have a unique birthday. Anyway, why am I ranting about my twins? Yesterday was their birthday and for almost a month now they have been discussing where they want to go for dinner on their birthday and could not agree on a single cuisine or restaurant. Finally as Thursday arrives this week and I am picking them up from school, one of the twins gets a bright idea to go to local restaurant Zona Rosa that the other twin absolutely does not want to got to – and this bright idea comes to Rani the night before for a Friday night reservation. I had to keep my cool, and pointed out to her that it would be hard to get reservations at this tiny Mexican restaurant in Los Gatos for a Friday dinner, and besides the other twin doesn’t want to go there anyway. So this is were we left our conversation with regards to a special birthday dinner for the twins. You know what this mean? It’s on me the Mom to come up with something cool and memorable 😉😏.
Kids being kids, you know what they like? Italian food and pasta! I decided to make dinner at home so that we can all chill out and relax on a Friday night but still have it feel special for a birthday celebration. This is what was on the menu for the twins birthday stay at home dinner – A carb-laden menu that the twins were thrilled to have 😃😋😀. If you are looking for a feel-good vegetarian menu, give this a try!
