Thanksgiving Day 2016/Mystery Blogger Award

Hello , Renxkyoko Iglesias here .

 

I’ve been nominated twice  for  Mystery Blogger Award by  livepulchritudinously  and  Nayan Nair . However, I couldn’t  find Nayan Nair’s link to that award,  so Nayan Nair, please send me that link again.

 

Anyway, here are my answers to livepul…….  questions.

 

a) What was the last movie you saw ?  I’ve been watching tons of movies on Netflix and Hulu.  I am watching  Body of Proof, a crime series,  right at  this moment.

 

b)  What is your favorite thing about winter ?   I get to wear  my cool boots  and winter jackets…. and most importantly,  Christmas.

 

c)  Do you have any pets ?  We have 2 dogs , one of which is my own, a pitbull. No one wanted to adopt a puppy pitbull at the animal shelter, so I did.  Her name’s Taylor, and I really love her.

 

d)  What was the last book you read ?   Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

 

e)  Are you allergic to anything  ?   Oh, sweet mother of pink, it’s weird that I get asked about allergies.  I just had an allergy attack at work last Friday, right after Thanksgiving Day. I got worried they might fire me .  Good thing I tested negative on milk (  O_O ! ) , more specifically  on almond and soy milk. I work at a dairy company, for Pete’s sakes. Well,   it is still a mystery what triggers  it.  Last time,  I suspected it was the red food color of chorizo.

 

This is it. Again, thank you for the award, @pulchritudineously.

 

Now, as per Ren’s tradition……  I post pictures of our Thanksgiving feast  every   year.  This year, however, there is really nothing much to show.  The family did not really feel like celebrating, because of * cough *  election issues  * cough * . But, I did not renege on my promise to do some cooking.  I made all the desserts…. heck, I even baked  the chocolate cake, angel food cake, and fruit cake from scratch. No store – bought cakes this year. And of course, I cooked my specialty, paella.

Six main dishes……. paella,  beef mechado,  lechon kawali (  boiled , then fried pork ribs  with liver sauce ) , lumpia (  wrapped  meat ), ham ( instead of turkey ), and honey roast chicken.  Desserts are  biko ( rice cake ) , fruit salad , chicken-macaroni salad, leche flan  (  egg custard made of egg yolks )  angel food cake (  I used the egg whites …. leche flan and angel food cake always go together ), fruit cake  (  from my gandmother’s recipe ), chocolate cake.

Oh, wait, my father bought pumpkin pie. Okay, one store-bought food.  I don’t like pumpkin pie, by the way.
