I am behind in my scheduled blog posts because I am hiding something from my husband. I am throwing for him a surprise birthday picnic party! =) What he knows is that my filipina friends and I are having a picnic this Saturday. I suspect that he suspects that its for him but aside from that he’s clueless with the details. I am excited and nervous to find out if I could pull this off, excited to bake his birthday cake, make the decors, try/cook new recipes (the only food I am buying are assorted cookies and possibly bread). As you can see I went shopping this morning, more shopping to come. Cooking starts on Thursday. I have frozen Lumpia already. Did I mention that I am really excited about the cake?
I have already reserved picnic tables already at the lakefront. I have hired a babysitter for Evan. Lassoed a filipina friend in helping help me out. I have compiled all the recipes. This is going to be fun. Nervewracking, exhausting but fun.
