A Birthday Feast II

Last year when I was in Toronto I went to A Birthday Feast held for my friend Rose. This year I am in Toronto for my birthday and my friends gave me a Birthday Feast. Of course, they always look for an opportunity to get together to celebrate and share a meal.

Grilled Corn, BBQ Corn, Birthday FeastThe original plan was to have a BBQ in a park down by the lake shore, but the weather did not cooperate. The weather had been mostly nice all week, but this weekend the weather changed and became wet and cold. In fact, I think that this is probably the coldest birthday I have had. The temperatures were only in the 40’s and I could even see my breath while outside watching the BBQ.

Here you can see the nice fresh corn on the cob that we grilled on the BBQ.

Filipino Food, Warming up Food, Oven, LumpiaWarming up in the oven were dishes of Filipino food, including lumpia and a noodle dish.

Chicken Afritada, Filipino Food, Birthday, Stove TopOn top of the stove a chicken afritada was also being warmed up. I really enjoyed these Filipino dishes.

We had a wonderful time eating together and sharing stories.

After dinner it was time for dessert with cake and ice cream, brownies and cassava.

Birthday Cake, Candles, Canada Map, Birthday FeastHere is the birthday cake. The birthday cake does not look very colorful, but it was a special cake that really was. Look for more details in a future post.

We did decide not to put the full number of candles on the cake, we didn’t want to have a fire hazard.

I like this picture as the map of Canada is in the background showing where we are.

Today has been a great day and I have received many birthday greetings through social media. I received greetings from all six continents, plus greetings from friends who were with me when I visited Antarctica.

Now to head back home tomorrow and prepare for my next adventure.
