cheers to mimay's 2nd year!
Since last Monday was a very special day because of our baby’s birthday, hubby and I decided to celebrate it by preparing home cooked meals. We could have just dine out but we chose not to because it’s our daughter’s birthday, so dapat special, dapat may effort ;) We took the day off from work and had Mimay all day in Skype. She was so kulit and hyper! She danced like there’s no tomorrow! 

Poy prepared his very own baby back ribs in BBQ sauce. It was so delish and lumalaban talaga sa Tony Roma’s! I’m loving Poy more and more. Ang sarap sarap na nya magluto ngaun. He really improved ng bonggang bongga!
For anyone out there who is salivating already, here is hubby’s very own recipe of BBQ baby back ribs.

For the BBQ baby back ribs sauce:
1 cup of tomato catsup
1 cup of distilled white vinegar (hubby used Heinz)
2 tsp of brown sugar
1/2 tsp of salt
1/2 tsp of ground pepper
2 cloves of minced garlic
1/2 tsp of onion powder
1/2 tsp of chili powder (optional)

Just combine all the ingredients in a small sauce pan and bring to boil. Reduce the heat and allow it to simmer for about 20 minutes until it becomes as thick as any normal BBQ sauce.

For the BBQ baby back ribs:
The only ingredient is a 3-slab baby back ribs. Once the ribs are cleaned up, place them in a pot of water and boil them for about 30 minutes. Afterwards give them a generous coating of sauce and wrap them in aluminum foil suitable for baking. Make sure to seal ‘em up and then place in the refrigerator for a couple of hours.

After that preheat the oven to 250°F and stick the ribs in. Let it cook for about 2 and 1/2 hours and take them out. Then coat the ribs with the remaining sauce and stick them back in the oven with the foil unwrapped. Turn the oven on broil and let them cook for about 15 more minutes. It's a fairly lengthy procedure but I bet you, very worth trying!

Me naman made my very own Cheesy Baked Mac and Cheesy Baked Potato.
I swear, ako gumawa nyan! It looks yummy no? Aminin! I got the recipe from my friend Len, which she got naman from this site.
I also made a baked potato for the starter. The photo doesn’t make justice to the taste though.
Incase you want to know how I made this baked potato, here are the easy steps: Wash and scrub the potatoes well then pat dry. Coat the potatoes with some oil not butter. Poke the potatoes a few times in order to let steam escape during the cooking process. Bake the potatoes in 425 degrees for about 45 min to an hour, or until soft. Then garnish with lots of grated cheese and bake for another 5 minutes. Do not overcook the cheese just like what I did.
I am deeply sorry for the quality of photos, all were just taken from my iphone. I have to get my own blog camera soon! Calling bibi! =)

101 housemates had their share of the food too! And there goes our yummy and personal celebration of ineng’s birthday, simple but planned and prepared with LOVE.
