Filipino Style Friend Pork

Wow it has been a long time since I've joined FTF! My schedule has been so messed up since my oldest son joined baseball. Between practice and taking care of the house and kids, my hands are tied pretty tight!

Anyway, I am so glad that I am able to join this week's FTF! For this week's entry, I am posting this Filipino style fried pork that I fixed about 2 weeks ago! It was so dang good! I can still taste the crispy skin and the juicy fats! Thinking about it is making my mouth watery right now! I haven't had any Filipino meals for about a week since I am on a diet with my husband and mother-in-law! But after I get off this diet, rest assured that I will be making this friend pork again!

Easy Minecraft Birthday Theme

My oldest son just turned 8 years old two days ago. Although we didn't have big plans for his birthday, I did decorate the house a little with balloons and some paper steamers. Since he's big on Minecraft right now, I picked out green and black colors so it would be a minecraft color theme. That little gesture on my part, really made my son so happy on his birthday. I love that he is so appreciative on every little things that I do for him!

Anyway, so his request on his birthday is to go to Chuck E Cheese to play. We went and stayed for a couple of hours and came home so he can blow and eat his cake and ice cream and open his presents. Another surprise that I had for him was minecraft cake. He was really thrilled to see it and couldn't wait to play with the minecraft mini action figures that I had put on the cake..

Below are some of the stuff that I personally made on his birthday, except for the cake of course. I ordered it at the grocery store with just green and black icing to match with the minecraft color theme and put the mini action figures that I had bought at Walmart when we got home...
DIY Creeper Balloon...very easy to make!
