My hubby and I went on a stroll on the boardwalk today. There was a slight breeze but the sun was peaking out so the weather was perfect!
We were starving so we went to this Puerto Rican spot called Mojito Cafe for lunch. I ordered a Black Cherry Peach Mojito. I thought it was a weird combo but the waitress said it taste great so I decided to give it a try! She was right it was a good choice!
For lunch, I ordered a Pernil Asado (Garlic flavored pulled pork) with Tostones (fried plantains). It was amazing! Pernil is one of my favorite Puerto Rican dishes so this definitely hit the spot! =)
My husband’s birthday was on June 30th and he finally hit the big 3-0! We had a fun filled weekend!
JUNE 30 – FRIDAY
We had breakfast at a local spot in the South Bronx. We were running a few errands in the area before heading to Mountain Creek Waterpark!
My cousins and friends had come into town and my mother n law was super nice to cook us all dinner that night. We had baked ziti, baked chicken, rice and beans, and garlic bread. It was so delicious! And we sung Happy Birthday to the birthday guy!
JULY 1 – SATURDAY
Now we’re on our way to Bubba Gump Shrimp in Times Square!
Later that night, I threw a party for Danny and invited our friends and family over!
Our guests were playing beer pong, King’s Cup which is a drinking card game, Head’s Up and other games as well!
My husband wanted pernil (Spanish style pulled pork) so I cooked it for the first time! His mother makes really good pernil so she gave me instructions on how to make it and it turned out amazing! There was no more pernil left haha!
I also made Buffalo Chicken dip for the first time and that was totally fine too so I’m guessing everyone like it!
Sorry that the food pictures look so rough. I took a quick snap shot of everything but I wanted you guys to see all that we had at the party!
Unfortunately I didn’t take any more pictures because I was caught up in the fun!
It was a great weekend and I’m glad that my husband enjoyed his birthday weekend! =)
