We are in the midst of our family birthday season – all three of our girls have summer birthdays within a month of each other followed by my husband two weeks later, and then at the end of the summer, mine. Needless to say, summer is our season of cupcakes and candles and many, many rounds of “Happy Birthday!”We have several traditions that we incorporate around our birthdays around here – and most of them are centered around food. First, the birthday girl (or boy) gets breakfast in bed (which is a tradition from my family growing up) and they also get to choose what they want for their birthday dinner. For as long as I can remember, all three girls request mussels and fries for their celebratory dinner. All three girls are also at different levels of picky-eater-ness, but, thankfully and maybe a little miraculously they ALL love this quintessential French dish. In fact, for my oldest’s 8th birthday – when we happened to be in Paris to celebrate, we took the whole crew to a Mussels & Fries spot on the Avenue des Champs-Élysées – a meal they still talk about today.
