Two easy & delicious party dishes

We had our son’s 12th birthday party at home a few weeks ago. 12 children came to the party and 9 children stayed the night.

We had a market in the morning so we had to get up at 4:30 in the morning on that day. SO…I made a really quick and easy dinner for the party.  It was a lovely sunny day so they swam in our swimming pool and had dinner next to the pool.


I always make all the food for parties

One of the dishes was rice pizza (our son’s request) ↓↓


Rice Pizza Recipe

Combine 2 cups cooked koshi/sushi rice,  3 tbsp SAORI Sesame &  Soya Japanese Sauce & two tbsp corn flour in a large bowl and mix well. Then put the rice mixture on a baking sheet on a baking tray (about 1cm thickness). Place any pizza topping on the rice. I topped with tomato, cheese and basil from my garden. Bake it in the oven at 180℃ for 15-20 minutes until the cheese is melted and golden brown. Option – serve with chilli flakes and/or olive oil. BTW…this is a great alternative for gluten intolerant people.

Another dish was Chicken stir-fry in SAORI Ponzu Sauce


This dish takes only 10 minutes to cook. Check out some feed backfrom our son’s friends who ate it….

“Saori! This is the BEST party I’ve ever come to! This chicken……mmmmmmm!”

” You should be a chef, Saori”

“Mmmmm… I wish my mum could cook like you”

I also baked his birthday cake the night before the party and one of his friends came to the kitchen and helped me to decorate it.


We sent the kids down to the cherry tree and told them to help themselves. Lots of red faces and fingers after that adventure.


I LOVE LOVE LOVE homemade parties.  Do kid’s parties need junk food? They barely touched the little bit of junk food sitting on the table!
