Christmas Lights at our Porch 365/325

We turned on the Christmas lights at our front porch a little while ago.  We discovered that three  strands of lights are not  lit, arggghhh.
November 24, 2011:
  • Our day started with  making the puto (Phil. version of  cup cakes).  The kids had so much fun helping me.
  • We got done steaming   the putos at around 11 am and we went to Dad's at 12 noon.  I fried the lumpia there so it would be hot and crisp.  It served as the snack while we were waiting for the  turkey to get done.
  • We came home at around 4 pm then hubby finished  connecting the extensions of the lights outside.
  • I made some ginger tea (that's what my husband called the salabat) because Ms. Burrito is starting to cough.  Salabat is what my Mom used to give us kids when we had cough or  sore throat, it's very effective.  Hubby likes it.

Ginger tea is very popular in the US because it is hot in the body. It drives away the coldness that is creeping in our body during winter. Ginger has great medicinal values. Your putos and lumpias served as appetizers for the main course which is your roasted turkey. Happy Thanksgiving to you all. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.
