Happy Birthday Jing and Mariger!!!

We have 2 celebrants in our group this March, Jing and Mariger!

When I relayed Jing's invitation to Mon, he said: 2 celebrants! Do we have Lechon?!?!?

My friends and I do not want the usual party fare anymore... Lengua, Paella, Lechon, Callos, Kare-Kare, Prawns, Crabs, etc.... So we thought of something different.

This time.... We just wanted a Picnic Themed Lunch!

Mayette helped with the "props": potted flowering plants, checkered table cloths, Pastel printed table napkins and cake plates.

Everybody helped in the preparation of the food.

Hamburger Sliders with Lays Cheddar and Sour Cream Potato Chips.

German Franks with relish, chopped onions, grated cheese, chili and condiments - ketchup, mayo, mustard and cheese sauce.

Boiled Corn with Butter
Mona cooked the Baked Macaroni for us with chorizo, Vienna sausage, red and green peppers, tomato sauce and cream cheese.

Pork Barbecue

Dessert was Strawberry Shortcake ordered from Mona's cousin. It was their family's gift to Jing.

Mon brought Chocolate Cake from Becky's Kitchen.

Mayette's Mom, Tita Letty baked an Apple Pie for the celebrants!

Everybody had fun and enjoyed the picnic food.... As you can see.....

Even Celina joined the birthday celebration via FaceTime!

There was no "candle-blowing" but the birthday girls cut the cake as we were singing "Happy Birthday".

My group is very small but we are like a BIG Happy Family!

Happy Birthday, Jing and Mariger! Mwahhh!!! Love you, "gels"!
