When I got to church services this morning one of the ladies told me that we were going to have a surprise birthday party for one of our friends.
We were all to leave quickly after services and go to Apricot Wood BBQ and hide in the upstairs dining room. I was all in for the surprise as this is one of my favorite restaurants in Patterson.
Our friend was very surprised to see all of us there and the bigger surprise was yet to come.
But first, the food.
I also had to have some California Gold BBQ sauce. I really like this BBQ sauce which has a nice mustard taste. For more about the sauces at Apricot Wood BBQ, look at my post: BBQ and a Sunset
How about one more look at the pork and the sweet potato fries. They have made changes to their sweet potato fries over time and I really like the new version. They have a nice texture and are loaded with taste.
We all had a great time at the surprise party, especially my friend who had the birthday. Her husband let her know that they were booked for a tour of England, Scotland and Wales next year. She was so excited.
Back to packing. I am applying The Packing Formula for my next trip. You will find out where very soon.
