My Birthday Fiesta!

Happy Birthday to me! Or should I say, Feliz Cumpleaños? Although my birthday was yesterday, May 1st, friends and I got together today to celebrate with a birthday fiesta. I tied in the popular Cinco de Mayo vibe with my birthday menu and it was muy delicioso!...

Normally my usual birthday celebration involves a luau, just as I've done in previous years. However since my friend hosted her bridal shower yesterday with a luau theme, it was only appropriate to switch it up and celebrate with a fiesta vibe and menu. Here's the menu I prepared, so stay tuned for the recipes all this week!

Spicy Lime & Honey Chicken Wings

Southwestern Eggrolls

Queso Fundido with  Chips

Roasted Pork Barbacoa

Chile Rubbed Flank Steak

Chipotle Cinnamon Rubbed Chicken

Dorito Taco Salad

Tres Leches Cake

It was a fabulous day with friends and family... and in some ways, a reunion of long time friends who've I've known as a child. Having a chance to catch up to reminisce about our childhood years together and share the journeys we've taken since all came to a full circle, which was especially fitting for my birthday. Here's to many more years to live, love and eat with friends and family!
