Thanksgiving , 2021


Compared to previous Thanksgiving feasts, this year we had less dishes on the table.

grilled chicken and embutido ( pork loaf )

My Mom’s favorite, Bopis. I don’t want to say what’s in there, LOL. Spicy and delicious.

Lechon with liver sauce.

Chicken macaroni salad and cassava cake….. not shown, fruit salad with pandan cream. Pandan is called vanilla grass .

Heart attack Humba dish. It does look unappetizing because of the fatty pork belly, but it’s very delicious, our family’s favorite. It’s pork cooked in Sprite ( instead of water), soy sauce, vinegar, brown sugar, salted black beans, dried banana blossoms, bay leaves, garlic, onions.

Garlic fried rice, of course.

My brother and sister.

My cousin and her hubby. My boyfriend couldn’t go because he was coughing so much…. didn’t want to infect the family. My sister’s hubby was also sick. …. just keeping everyone safe.

I decorated the house early. Hahaha!

Guys, do you know I was in Hawaii for 2 weeks this November ? ( Pics on next post )

  1. Wow! If that was less dishes than usual I can’t imagine what ‘usual’ would look like.

    • We didn’t get to cook the usual dishes, like lumpia ( egg rolls ) kaldereta, sauteed noodles , paella, and turrones. ( wrapped banana ) . I couldn’t help my Mom because I had work on Thanksgiving . ( I work at a dairy company, and you know, it’s the holidays. )
