Christmas Feast

Here's our simple Christmas feast at home.  The great thing about celebrating Christmas at home is that, you can  prepare whatever  you  are in the mood to eat.  Mind you, there's only four of us but  we all have  different cravings.
Instead of cookies, we  made some puto.   Don't confuse the word puto for the  Mexican word hehehe.  Puto is a Filipino  type of steamed rice cake usually served as snack or as accompaniment to savory dishes such as dinuguan or pancit.  That's why yopu will see  a pancit (rice noodles) dish  in this post.
 My daughter love  this pasta salad that I always make for her school lunch so I made some too  just for her but of course we had some too.
 Chocolate crinkles is the only cookies we baked this year.  We don't really bake too much cookie during the holiday, we only make those that we really want to eat.  I will post the recipe  of this on a separate  post, we  used the  Betty Crocker recipe for this one and it's really good.
 You can never go wrong  making  pancit bihon (rice noodles), it's always a hit in my family.  The good thing about  this is, we can always eat the left over for breakfast, it's a win win situation for me.

 We gotta have rice to complete the  meal.  I made  some BBQed ribs to go with  it.
 My husband was craving for some lumpia (spring rolls) so I fried him some.  I  made these  few months ago and freeze them.
 On Christmas day, I made some spaghetti for  dinner.
So there you go, our little Christmas feast.  Even the dogs enjoyed some of the left overs.
