So, yesterday was my birthday and we were in Bacoor. We went home on Saturday night along with my parents because I requested them so. Haha. My mom helped me prepare a simple dinner for my friends who live around the area. We also invited a few of our neighbor-friends over.
It was tiring to cook food but I still went ahead with it because it’s more economical to feed 20 people that way than treating them to a restaurant. Plus, I still have two more birthday dinners to host for my other friends so I have to stick to my budget. As it turned out, we had so much food left that night. We brought everything to Manila this morning for my siblings and my in-laws to enjoy.
Anyway, my friends said they liked everything I prepared naman. My menu was pretty simple, actually. I had roasted chicken, roasted vegetables, grilled liempo, grilled bangus, 5-sausage linguini, Monte Cristo sandwiches and rice. For desserts, I served them with my homemade chocolate cake but this time, I used chocolate frosting instead of ganache.
Our tiny house was filled with chatter and laughter that night. The hubby and I like it when we have guests at home. It does not only improve our social life but it also makes our house more alive, if you know what I mean.
On a related note, I received some birthday presents from family and friends. I’ll definitely take a picture of them as I’ll include them in my shopping fast‘s October report.
How was your weekend, friends? 🙂
