Happy New Year to all of you. I’m sure everyone is thinking now of the new year ahead of us. Are you one of those folks that will set a goal for the year? I guess, this year I will try again to set a goal for the whole year. I did set goals when I used to lived in the States. It’s easier to set my goal there, it’s not a laid back kind of life there. I really had to do what needs done there. Unlike here now that I am a bit relaxed and procrastinate some of the work that needs get done. Hey, sometimes I had some other people do it for me though. In short, kind of living the lazy life. Ha ha ha. But the coming year I will try to do it myself. Not rely on others to do it for me. Crossing my fingers on that. 🙂
You’ve probably noticed if you are my friend on Facebook that I had been posting some pictures of foods that we cooked here at the house. One of my goals for the coming year will be trying to cook food for others. I am talking food that’s usually eaten by the foreigners. I am not a good cook for Filipino dishes. I know some, but not a whole lot though. But I know how to cook more of the American dishes or foreign dishes than with the local dishes here.
Just like during Thanksgiving me and my niece cooked our food from scratch. From the pies, the crusts, stuffing the sausages, yams, mashed potatoes, pumpkin and banana breads and others. We also made different kinds of cookies. Really in every holidays that we are celebrating now, me and my niece were the ones cooking our foods. We made a few cakes. Not totally liking the store cakes now. Some were dry, plus we can play around with the recipe.
I’m excited to start my journey this year. It will be an exciting one. I am going to show you guys the links later after everything’s done. To those of you who are our customers from WowPhilippines you are also welcome to see the links and order from there.
So watch out for my site about the food that we cook here in the house. Maybe you want some of it. I will tell you though every person that tried the food that we gave during holidays or we invited them for a small get together here at the house, they all say they like it. During Thanksgiving not just this year but from the previous years, people that were invited really raved how good the food was. So I guess all in all everyone were pleased of the food that was served here at the house. I’m not going to argue on that though, for one, Bob was my number one critique. He will tell me honestly if the food was good or not good. Second critique would be the kids. They really let me know if the food that was served were good or not. They’ve been so brutally honest about it. If they like the food they let me know. If they don’t like it, they also let me know. I will tell you though foods during Thanksgiving were really a big hit in the house. Really my kids think that me and my niece can cook any dishes that would be thrown to us. My niece she’s good also in cooking Pinoy dishes.
During the feeding at the orphanage we were cooking some of the dishes for the kids there. It was fun. The kids and the nuns and the people that helped out there like the food that we brought there.
Have fun eating.
