It is my son’s 13 th birthday and he requested this Lumpia. And who am I to refuse him on his special day.
When it comes to my kids’ birthday, I am always very particular about the food I serve because my kids’ friends are mostly non Filipino, so I worried about what they will eat; but this Lumpia is always “sold out” among their friends. They keep coming on seconds and thirds until I have to cook for another batch. They also love the Pandesal, so next time they come over, I am going to serve it as well.
I always love having people around the house. Whenever my kids asked for sleep over, I don’t refuse because aside from I get to know and meet their friends, it is an opportunity to cook some good food. I remember one of my son’s friend loving Filipino noodle soup and Pansit. I enjoyed watching him devouring the food and enjoying it. So every time he comes and visit, his dinner is always covered and it looks like he is getting used to it too…
