November 22 marks the natal day of our “haligi ng tahanan” (house pillar), and because the special day fell on a weekday, we all agreed to just dine out for dinner.
My husband and I fetch our youngest son in school in the afternoon, while our eldest son after office work went straight to SM Fairview where we met to celebrate a simple family dinner. My husband doesn’t want a grandiose birthday celebration; he wants to spend it intimately with us, simple dining, plus a lot of talking and chatting
Yahmir, requested for a pizza dinner, so we went straight to Shakey’s Pizza. We ordered the 18 inches of pizza goodness which is perfect and big enough for all of us. It is divided into our 4 most popular flavors so everyone’s sure to find their favorite – Shakey’s Special, Pepperoni, Classic Italian Sausage and Friday Special.
For starters, we ordered the Creamy Mushroom Soup while waiting for our pizza.
We also have this Family Buffalo Wings which is a perfect combination to the grand slam pizza. For our drinks, we ordered two pitchers of their House Blend Iced Tea.
JM gave his dad a cute birthday cupcake.
Nobody ordered for any side dish or pasta anymore, the pizza was too big and heavy already. We are all full and satisfied.
After a short round in the bookstore, we claimed Yahmir’s spare set of eyeglasses from Ideal Eye Wear, and JM’s coat in the dry clean service, then we went home. The birthday cake is waiting for us.
