Days before the New Year’s Eve Celebration, I’ve made a declaration that I would not cook our “Media Noche” that time. I thought I was tired of doing it over and over again. The family willingly agreed with my plan. They even suggested that we just have pizzas, pasta and chicken be delivered from a pizza chain store. However, as I passed by the wet market the day before, I found myself picking up those food stuff required for cooking my usual Media Noche fare again! These people around me were like.. shrugging their shoulders and telling me, “it has now been a habit for you that you hardly would ever beat”. Well, I think so too. Not that I always prepare special dishes! I only feel that I need to be busy in the kitchen to feel the atmosphere of the holiday’s gaiety! Weird, but that’s me!
Here are some of the simple dishes that took my time:
I didn't make desserts anymore as they've been made available by friends who sent Ube Jam and Leche flan. Thanks to daughter's friend and mine!
