we were priviliged enough to be hosted by my cousin keelan and his wife amelia and their two precocious sons samuel and joshua, for a hybrid western/filipino christmas eve dinner. growing up christmas eve dinner wasn’t a big deal in my household, but it was nice to have a family dinner on a family holiday.
mac and cheese – this is the california pizza kitchen recipe. sadly, it’s velveeta. still tasty, though.
josh only has eyes for the cupcake santa
a filipino dessert called brazos de mercedes made with egg whites and egg yolks folded with sugar. it was really tasty.
