Weekend Party

My husband wanted to cut the watermelon. My Father in law invited our close family members to come Saturday for the slicing of the Watermelon...LOL! It turned out a good party and everyone had fun. I can only share what we prepare minus the faces of my family. This is really a sweet, juicy and crunchy watermelon. Yep...not seedless this time.
All we did was eat and talk about funny experiences, plans to pursue and just having chit-chat. Well, father-in-law just loves this moment. He loves to entertain and become the hosts. This is a huge watermelon bought at Grand Bay, Alabama and costs only $4. WOW PRICE!This is just half of the watermelon. We save it for those who wanted to have a "BH". Our family have this tradition hahaha, same with Filipino tradition huh? Considering that I am the only Filipino in the family.
Since my father in law invited everyone, my hubby and I checked the pantry and since we have this, I decided to bake a cake. It is easy to follow the directions on the box.
I have the following ingredients: cake mix, 1 and one-fourth cups water, one-third vegetable oil, three eggs.
Poured it into a cake pan. Oven was set to 350 degrees.
For icing on the top, I used this brand and it is white.
I need to cool this cake for 10 minutes before adding the frosting. Since I used the round pan, I baked it to 34 minutes until the toothpick which I inserted comes out clean.
I am not a cookie monster...LOL! My husband is. But, this brand really appeal to my taste buds and so, I think I will become one in due time.
This is the second batch of the cookies. I made it smaller and I forgot to time it, LOL. But, I like it brown and crunchy. So this is good enough for me. Almost burned! LOL!
My preparation is just like this. No shape at all, too lazy huh?
The first batch of cookies which I bake was bigger that is why I made another set and make it smaller and crunchier.
In the oven at 350 degrees for 4 minutes.
My first baked cookies! Dang! Not a good one ...huh!
Drained the water.
Yummy shrimp!
With tomato sauce as dip.
Instead of expecting only water melon to eat, the shrimp was really a big surprise for them. The party was really good.
