1st Birthday Buffet

Last weekend, I helped celebrate by godson's first birthday. A monumental first. It's weird to think that it's been a year from when I first saw him at his birth. How time flies by so fast. It was a halloween/birthday, so the little babies came dressed for the occasion. As with any party the food  consisted of buffet style servings. It was a mix of Chinese and Filipino food.

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.

Fried Chicken
Lechon Kawali - Deep-fried pork pieces (That's my favorite!!!)

Beef with Broccoli

Shrimp with sauteed veggies
Orange Chicken

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.

So many babies!!! No wonder I was tuckered out by the end of it.

Finally, I just have to share this last one. The little St. Bernard. How adorable is that?!

That spread looks sooo good! So many new dishes I am now really eager to try! For my first birthday I had a Teddy Bear Picnic. My mum made an insane amount of peanut butter sandwiches that looked like teddy bears!

What a feast! I'd like to make spaghetti with hot dog slices sometime. My mom used to put a small piece of hot dog, pickled daikon radish and a third ingredient in Korean-style sushi when I was growing up.
