It's been too long since I last posted. I told myself 2014 should be a blogging year. too many projects on my mind but if I were to really get each one done and as I get these done, then I will start blogging and making sure to share this. Today is Christmas Day. I just finished Xmas breakfast....tapsilog and longsilog. The tapa I use is the mexican cessina. It is exactly what I know tapa should be. I don't have to cure the beef anymore. The local carniceria carries it for $3.99 a pound and I dare you to head over to your nearest Mexican carniceria and try it. The longanisa I use is the pampanga version, a bit on the sweetish side. wish I could access Ilocos longanisa or even that from Ilo-ilo. sigh. I keep threatening to make my own...NOT. Daughter Bambi Bell and I bought restaurant grade rib in rib eye roast for tonight's dinner. She will do the honors. She's got a whole line up of sides and accompaniments and she called to see if I would help her. But it must have been just a fluke because upon conversing, she just needed reassurance since she's not used to being ahead of her game. But after so many hostings, she has it down pat and she just needs reassurance that she's on the right track. Last night, Xmas eve, we had a simple dinner, but still Xmas specific, baked Ham with dinner rolls, very both American and Filipino at the same time. And a chicken breast with spinach and mushrooms over egg noodles as an accompaniment. It was too short a Christmas holiday but...now it's time to face the New Year and its challenges.
