for his special day, carbonara

I'm baaaack! I missed my blog! I have stories. Medyo bulok ng onts pero pwede pa naman! :P

So here it goes. Papi {referring to my biological father :D} turned a year older last month. I was really looking forward to that day because I wanted to cook for him. You read that right, COOK. =) And since my carbonara last New Year failed, I decided to try again. So for my father's special day, CARBONARA.

But before that, let me give you a glimpse of my failed carbonara last New Year. Burnt bacon and sauce that tasted like condensed milk. Failed yun pag ganun dba? =))

excited one moment, disappointed the next

spot those burnt bacon

Moving on to my father’s birthday, I opted to use instant gourmet sauce. Daya much? Del Monte carbonara sauce has a recipe at the back. We just bought what's written there. Make life easy! phhbtt!

because I won't list them down

TADDAAAA! Carbonara that tasted like uhmm.. real carbonara! Goal #4. Give cooking a shot. CHECK!!

it's yummeehh this time, believe it or not

And oh, my cousin share the same birth date with my father. So his wifey also prepared something. We also had Graham Mango Float courtesy of my brother, ice cream and black forest cake. All set! Instant birthday celebration.

our labor of love

the birthday boooyyss..

maisingit lang ang picture ko :P

AND AND.. let me just boast some more. Papi also had his celebration at the barangay hall. Thanks to those who continuously support and love him. Walang iwanan. Group Huuuug! HAHAHA!

cheers to the birthday boooyy!!

Plugs. Plugs. Thank you for your comments. ^__^

Belated Happy birthday sa iyong Papi! I'm sure super saya niya kasi ipinagluto mo sya. Hmm.. ang ganda ng 25 before 25 list mo ah.. pwede makigaya? hehe...

Hmm.. okay lang yan kahit gumamit ng instant sauce. Ganun din kasi ginagawa ko eh.. haha! Apir. It's the thought that counts naman diba.. pero plus points talaga pag masarap ang niluto mong food. booyeah!

P.S.
Ang sarap ng black forest cake.. grr.. naglaway tuloy ako.
