Trinda's Birthday

We had dinner out for Trinda's birthday. The banner was quite a surprise. She wanted crispy pata, which is a local specialty. It is a pork leg, boiled till tender. Then deep fried till the skin is crispy. It is actually pretty good.
Of course she blew out the candles on he cake. Not like they were all there....

We made a "Key Lime Pie" but with a recipe adapted for the local limes, called calamanse. They are smaller than key limes and maybe a little sweeter. It took more than 40 to get the required 1/2 cup of juice. But it was well worth it!
