Christmas Dinner 2013

Merry Christmas everybody, that's another Christmas Dinner over and done with for another year.

How was yours then? did you opt for Turkey or go with something  a bit more interesting? I refuse to have that bird grace my dinner table but we do roast a crown for sandwiches for the next few days.

Christmas dinner in my house this year was a simple affair, easy recipes that could be made the day before with little effort and would all come together with very little hassle and that would please my incredibly fussy family.
I am going to blog a few of the recipes but here is few picture I managed to take throughout the day of the end result.

  1. Philippine pili nuts from the Bicol region in the Philippines is a great Filipino or Philippines food or snack. Pili nuts are very healthy and nutritious indeed, being a source of energy, potassium and iron. They also have protein, dietary fiber / fibre, and calcium as well as monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats. I know they have no cholesterol, no trans fat, and the unsalted ones have no sodium. What is great about the pili nut snack or treat is that they are so crisp, rich, and delicious.
