A Christmas Celebration

With Christmas day just a few hours away, I’m sure everyone is busy preparing all sorts of delicious dishes for tonight’s celebration. Cooking hams, baking desserts, roasting turkeys, making pasta. I’m sure careful planning has gone into making everyone’s Christmas menu.

If you haven’t made up your mind yet, which I’m sure you have, here’s a thought: why not make an all Filipino menu for your noche buena Christmas dinner, or media noche? Last year, my family and I had what you might say a semi-Filipino menu for our noche buena: We had pancit, arroz caldo, hamon, barbecues, cheese, fruitcake and a fruit salad. It was a very refreshing break from what we normally prepare.


Wouldn’t it be nice to try something very Filipino? You could serve pancit, lechong manok, morcon, lumpiang sariwa, buko salad, puto bumbong and bibingka. And let’s not forget the Christmas ham.

It’s just a thought. What we need to keep in mind though is that whatever we prepare for tonight we prepare with love, and that we will be sharing it with our loved ones.
