Oh NO! Toooo low! And to think I ate a lot of food yesterday. Just goes to show it is very hard to manage diabetes but I am working on it everyday.
Happy Birthday Everyday, Lia!!!
I celebrated my birthday with my Senior friends today.
Tita Butchie Ayuyao and Tita Mita Ampil were friends of my mom, who adopted Tita Portia and I as their friends.

We would meet once a month for lunch.
Then, the group got bigger, Tita Josie Yao, best friend of Tita Mita, joined us. Then....Tita Tess Colayco.

I also invited Eega Narvaez, friend of PD. All of them were Tita Portia's students. Tita Ruby has been PD's friend since her riding days at Da'Rosa, I am also very close to her.

Whenever I have guests, I have a few favorite food that I like to cook for them. They are tried and tested recipes and some, I could prepare ahead of time.
My all time favorite crowd pleaser is the Paella.
Next is the Lechon Kawali .... who could resist the crunchy skin?
Chicken Relleno is such a breeze to prepare... I even deboned the chicken.
Fried Lumpiang Ubod is another favorite.
I just mixed some apples, pineapples, raisins, celery and cucumber for a walnut-less mock Waldorf Salad. Tita Mita is allergic to nuts.
The desserts were presents by .....
Eega .... A Creme Brulee kind of cake.... the top is like yema and in between the layers of chiffon cake is yummy cream!!!
Ruby ... chocolate cake
Josie ... Amber's pichi-pichi.
PD set the table for me
and packaged the Pastillas de Leche I made the other day as my give-aways.
There was a surprise fortune written at the back of each leaf.
I loved mine!!!!
So.... come out... come out ... whoever you are!!!! Hahahahaha.
Ohhhh and I loved the gifts too!!!
I am so blessed I have so many friends who want to celebrate my birthday with me.
Thank you so much... my senior friends! Until next year!!!!
