What I did for HIS birthday...

El Hubby Cakes turned a year older on the 19th of November. I asked him what he wished to do, and as always, he said nothing lol. He never makes a big deal of his birthday unlike me, who likes to celebrate  for a whole month ^_^. But that's one of the things I love about him. He is a simple man.

When he finally decided, he asked if we could just get food to go and relax at home or take his mom out for dinner. So we did both and more...

Here's what I did...

1. 2 days before his birthday, I took him to a sushi restaurant in Hermosa Beach and a cupcakery. The restaurant had Bruce Lee playing on a projector. Fun!

2. The night before his birthday, I cooked homemade shrimp and salmon in a tomato cream sauce. He thought it was amazing and even ate leftovers the next day.

3. On his birthday, I woke up extra early in the morning to steal his car and fill up his gas tank. He was all smiles when he saw his gas gauge in full. He thought it was the sweetest thing I've ever done. Really, babe?

4. I bought this game controller thinngy for his cellphone that he's been wanting. I don't remember the exact name. Again, he was all smiles.

5. For his birthday dinner, we went to Benihana with his mom. Benihana is a Japanese Tepanyaki restaurant. He was so embarrassed when servers came to our table and sang happy birthday in English and Japanese. I got it on video.

Pumpkin cupcake. It has a really strong pumpkin flavor and the icing is not too sweet.

My local super market hooked me up with a hot and fresh apple pie right out of the oven. El Hubby Cakes doesn't care much for cake so I got him a pie instead.
