Going Away Potluck for boss Deb.

Like what I said, I love pot lucks and I can have it every week. It's so much fun to get together with friends and share food with one another. Click HERE to see my recent potluck post. We decided to have a potluck lunch at work as a surprise to my boss' last day of work because she will be transferred to another location. It wasn't a surprise anymore since someone told her about it lol. On the other hand, she was surprised on how much food we brought and she was so happy and thankful.

We did it in our small lunch area and we sat together and pigged out while we chatted and exchanged funny, girly and Twilight stories lol.

Jackie made her famous and delicious Mexican Rice with mushrooms, tomatoes and red onions. It was so good, I could eat it by itself.

Jackie also made her Soy Sauce Beans requested by me. She mashed cooked pino beans and added a little bit of soy sauce. Its a little sumthin' sumthin' in there that makes  you go...hmmmm what is that?

I bought this Colossal Roasted Chicken from Ralphs. I didn't have time to make the lumpias so I brought this instead. Its very tender and the meat kind'a melts in your mouth. You can't go wrong with roasted chicken from the grocery store. It's good, very affordable and it fed everyone!

Jackie brought a little of Carne Asada.


Patty brought her delicious Chicken Flautas. Click HERE to find out what flautas are. This is my second time eating Patty's Flautas. They are crunchy and delicious and goes well with sour cream, salsa and guacamole.

Jackie once again made this Guacamole dip/sauce. Oh man this is one of my favorites from Jackie's cooking. She mixed guacamole, lots of lime/lemon juice, tomatoes and cilantro in the blender to make a sauce consistency. It's simplicity at its best! It's very tangy and goes great with pretty much anything.

Kristie brought these beautiful cupcakes from Frosted Cupcakery in Hollywood for desert. They are very famous cupcake place in Los Angeles. They were the perfect sweets to end out pig out session. Don't you just wanna taste everything? We cut everything in half so everyone can have a little bit of everything.

I got half of the orange cupcake with white chocolate shavings ( left) and those little cupcake sandwich looking thinggys (right) lol. These are the best cupcakes I've had in a long time. I've never had an orange flavored cupcake and, its was very delicious. I love how the orange flavor wasn't too much but it really pulled through. The little cupcake sandwich was very interesting. Those crystals you see are not sugar. They're actually salt crystals. It was unexpected and I made a weird face when I took a bite. On the other hand, I kept eating it because the flavor was very intriguing ^_^

Deb brought this pretty Red Velvet cake for Kristie because it was her birthday a week a go. Ugh...my tummy was about to explode so I only took a bite of this O_o

This was our beautiful spread that we tried to fit in the skinny table at the lunch area lol.





Grace and I went to Jackie's place to help her cook some of the stuff ^_^


Overall, it was a fun and successful potluck. We will surely miss Deb. She's the best boss/manager a person could ever have. Good luck to her!
