Happy Birthday PD!!!

We all call Tita Portia, PD.  When my nephew, Nicky, was 2 years old, Tita Portia was teaching him to say PRETTY but it came out as PD, so she got stuck with the nickname.  Even my friends call her PD.

I am so super backlogged with my postings because I have been very busy.  December 23 is the birthday of PD, my Kuya Raul and it was also the birthday of my Mom.

For several years in a row, PD has been celebrating her birthday lunch with our senior friends with whom we meet for lunch every month plus a few of her other close friends. 



The menu would vary at times but more often than not, she always asks me to cook:

I experimented with Buko Lychee Delight, a recipe I got from her friend but I think it did not turn out the way it should be, but they said it tasted good just the same.



There was a new addition to the group and she brought the most delicious Macaroni Salad!  Her secret was the homemade mayonnaise made with Olive oil.  I will try to make it one of these days.

It is already a bonus when seniors celebrate their birthdays each year.  I pray that there will be more to come!!!!



Happy Birthday PD!!!
