Birthday in Belmopan

On Thursday, I will turn 29 years old (for the first time).  So, last night I threw myself a birthday party.  My original idea was to rent out a bar and bring in this awesome band from San Pedro, but they wanted $1200US to come play, so I decided to have a BBQ on my back porch with music from my ipod.

Now, since my birthday is St. Patrick's Day, I encouraged everyone to wear green.  I also asked people to bring side dishes or desserts with bonus points for green food.  As with every theme party here in Belmopan, people went all out.  There were two green cakes - one of them shaped like a leprechaun hat.  Moreover, there was green bean dip, salad, zucchini, and even green hummus (looked gross, tasted great).  Plus, I made watergate salad (which is also green).

The BBQ was a big hit as around 30 people consumed two dozen burgers, two packs of hot dogs, and more than a dozen chicken kabobs (which were delicious), plus two and half cakes and all the side dishes.  We also polished off 15 bottles of wine, 6 bottles of liquor, and over two cases of beer.  It was a good night.
The food was delicious

  3. Watergate salad is:
    1 bag of mini marshmallows
    1 can of crushed pineapple in its own juice
    1 tub of cool whip
    1 box of Jello pistaccio pudding mix.

    Combine ingredients and enjoy
