What I cooked for Christmas

I mentioned earlier in my last post that I usually am the one who cooks dinner for my family and that I will also be the one to cook . It wasn’t easy cooking six dishes on the same day, it was really exhausting to the point that I already want to sleep and don’t want to wait until 12 midnight and not to mention some of the dishes that I cooked were a total flop. Boohoo. Next time I will cook a lot of food on the same day I’ll make sure to start early so that I won’t get pressured in cooking and I will be able to finish it on time. I was so glad because my family also helped me in preparing the food. Next time I’ll make sure to do it properly and I’ll make sure that I will practice more so that I won’t get disappointed with the food that I cooked. Good thing my Lasagna was a total hit and also my Cordon Bleu.

So what I cooked during Christmas Eve were Lasagna, Cordon Bleu, Bulgogi, Beef Steak, Garlic Buttery Shrimp, and a Strawberry Cheesecake. I wasn’t able to take some nice photos of it because my relatives were already begging to eat dinner because they said that they were already starving so I didn’t have any choice and just let them eat right away. Lol. I do have pictures but I’m still not sure on whether I should post it. Lol.

Anyway, Merry Christmas everyone and enjoy the holidays with your loved ones! 🙂

Christmas is just around the corner!

Christmas is my favorite time of the year, not just because I’ll receive gifts (although I’m extremely happy when I do) but mainly because of the weather. I like the gloomy kind of weather, since it’s always hot here in the Philippines, I like it when the sun doesn’t come out and just stays hiding for the rest of the day. I like it when I’m outside and my sweat isn’t dripping from my body and the sunlight isn’t painful to the skin.

I love cooking and because it’s almost Christmas, I have the excuse to cook my favorite dishes and whenever it is Christmas time I am always the one who cooks the food for my family. I love that I get to cook not just my favorite dishes but also to try the new recipes that I discovered. I love it when I get to cook for my family, especially on special occasions. I’m no master chef but it seriously warms my heart every time they tell me that they loved the food that I prepared for them.

I’m thrilled to know what presents I’ll be getting this year, I hope it will be something that is useful. Shoutout to my family and friends, I just wanted to let you guys know that I’m already accepting gifts! Haha! Kidding!

Anyway, it doesn’t really matter if I’ll receive something this Christmas, if I’ll receive something then I’ll be glad but if I don’t then it’s still all right with me, because what’s important is that my loved ones are safe, we’re all together, and I also wish that whatever hardships that we’re dealing right now, that we’ll be able to get through it.

Advance Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you and  your family will have a Merry Christmas this year! 🙂
