On the menu:
Lumpiang Shanghai - Filipino-style eggrolls
Spaghetti with hotdog slices. Yeah that's how we rolls in the Philippines. Forget the meatballs, put the hotdog instead and add ketchup and a little sugar to the sauce with make it a little sweet.
Lechon Kawali - Deep-fried pork pieces (That's my favorite!!!)
Beef with Broccoli
Shrimp with sauteed veggies
Sweet and Sour Fish
Kare-kare (pronounced ka-re) - this one is a peanut butter based dish with veggies, pork and tripe.
Turon - this is a little similar to my fried plantains except that it's wrapped in an eggroll wrapper with a piece of jack fruit inside then fried with a brown sugar coating. Sooo good.
Must not forget the white rice. You can't go to an Asian party without there being rice. There was also Filipino-Style adobo, but I forgot to take a pic of that one.
Of course, can forget the birthday cakes. I'm not sure what the flavors were bit the first one had a cookie like center to it. It was pretty good. It was a fun food filled day.
Here's a couple of pics from the party.
A Spongebob bounce house. I haven't been in one of those in years, so it was pretty fun to jump back in and play around. Bring that inner child out from me once again.
The proud mama, and my best friend for nearly 2 decades, with the birthday boy.
Finally, I just have to share this last one. The little St. Bernard. How adorable is that?!
