Pics of Christmas celebration 2021 at home

Clockwise: pastries from 85 degrees ( the best, ever ), baked macaroni, beef with mushrooms, pork asado, embutido ( pork loaf ) pork eggroll

Hot egg drop soup with soft tofu, made from scratch

Baked macaroni ( I didn’t have time to cook bechamel sauce on top ….. the macaroni sauce has tomato sauce, ketchup, heavy cream,milk, cheese, fish sauce and soy sauce….. the fish sauce and soy sauce make this pasta dish typically Filipino, but, believe it or not, it’s a winner…… in fact, when I cooked this dish for our potlock at work, my co-workers nagged me for the recipe, which I was UNWILLING to give away because it’s a secret , family recipe, ha haha ! My Mom had a successful catering business in the Philippines, and you know, just like you don’t ask a lady her age, you don’t ask a caterer for the recipe of the dish…(“…”)

Beef with mushrooms

Chicken macaroni and fruit salads

Mango, ube ( purple yam ) Boston Creme cakes


Sister and Dad

I just love these pastries from 85 degrees. If you’re in California, go in and buy their pastries, especially their French bread.

Well, this is all for now, folks. Happy 2022 !
