A perfect Christmas Eve dinner must have the following ingredients:
- family members wearing the best smiles;
- food that entices the senses;
- gifts for giving and receiving; and
- hearts filled with thanksgiving
Every year I am blessed with the perfect Christmas. This time around, my mom prepared this delectable Meaty Creamy Lasagna Supreme. The name says it all: creamy bechamel cheese sauce and meaty red sauce layered between al dente pasta and topped with mozzarella cheese and crispy bacon bits.
The ham completes every Filipino Christmas dining spread. Ham generally refers to the cured or cooked cut of meat from the thigh of the hind legs of a pig.
Filipinos have many beliefs and traditions when celebrating the holidays. One of which is the presence of round fruits on the dining table because it is believed to bring prosperity to the household.
For dessert, we had Silvanas from our all-time favorite Brownies Unlimited
On Christmas Day, we had a reunion with my dad's side of the family. I hope you enjoyed your Christmas just like I did. Happy Holidays from our family to yours!
Feel free to share your Christmas stories!
