I've been absent from blogging these past few days because I prepared for my daughter's 10th birthday party last weekend. I am dead tired yesterday and still have not recovered fully. This is one of those times where I wish I have some help in the house. I cooked and cleaned all by myself. Phew, I'm glad that I only have two kids and their birthdays are 6 months apart. LOL I cooked a total of 6 dishes: Baked Penne, Barbequed Pork Baby Back Ribs, Osso Buco, Macaroni Salad and Pancit Palabok. I also made Puto(Rice cake) and Leche Flan.
It was just a small celebration with a few close friends and their families. Some family and friends weren't able to make it. My friends Mira of Random Thoughts, Lanie of I Thought So and Lou of The Shutterbug came over despite the weather not cooperating. It took Lou and her family about 3 hours to get to our place because of the weather. Good thing I made Lou the same cake from this post. I promised to give her this cake the next time we see each other. (I hope it was worth the trip Lou! LOL) I think it also took Lanie and family almost the same amount of time because they got behind two snowplows on their way here. This is why I LOVE my friends! :o) Better end this here since I still need to google what a Mesothelioma lawyer is.
