Lutong Bahay will be a short tag on the title which I'll use to feature home-cooked food, either in our own home or at a friend's house.
It's been exactly a week after my little sister spent her 17th birthday. However, it's funny how one of her closest friends just gave us a pot of home-cooked Birthday Noodles yesterday, wishing my sister a belated birthday and long life. (This particular friend is also my sister's college classmate now.)

Although I find it a little funny that her friend gave this a week later, even when they see each other everyday, it's still very thoughtful of her to give this traditional Chinese birthday offering.
Her version is of misua noodles, topped with chicken meat, squid, shrimps, mushrooms, fried garlic, green onions and peanuts. My dad found the noodles a little oily, but nonetheless, very flavorful.

My dad said we should return the pot with uncracked raw eggs -- another Chinese tradition I still cannot understand. But the funny thing is, my sister's friend owns a poultry business and usually gives us a free tray of eggs! *toinks*
How about you, what's your favorite kind of noodles? And do you usually serve noodles (of any form) in your birthday celebrations?
