The Weekend of Surprises

Preivously before the weekend, we had a pot luck in my company and I made sandiwches for everybody!

It contained:
toasted bread
glaric lemon mayo
smoked salmon
romane lettuce

This was an instant sell out! One thing I didn't like was how I toasted the bread, it just made it more dry and crunchy. Ew.

It was a frigging crazy weekend! Two surprise parties, lots of yelling, ball, working out and of course arguing with the lady in red =\.

Saturday was a birthday surpise for Angel; my church friend. Jackie wanted me to bake a nice cheesecake for his girlfriend and gave me strict instructions to make sure it was good. Oh trust me, it was good. I used Jamie Oliver's reciepe for the cake and it turned out fantastic. Instead of using cream, I used milk this time and it actually wasn't bad at all. The milk made it more creamy in my opinion and gave it a smooth texture. Too bad I didn't get any pictures of people enjoying it but you get the picture.
