Welcomed 2012 With A Feast

Happy New Year!

Our New Year's Eve table. Did you notice the lechon missing 
its skin?  Unfortunately the lechon skin did not survive
the flight from Cebu so we had to strip it off and
pan-fry it to make it crispy

Homemade banana bread from Tita F. and Mom's pinoy spaghetti

Pansit Bihon, and of course Dad's must have queso de bola and ham 

The Little Girl ushered the new year with her vuvuzela

While the Little Boy welcomed the new year
by continuous honking

The Kids' New Year's Day table spread

This is the Oldies' table 


This is Ate P's pasta, which I helped cook.  This dish was the surprise hit dish of the day, it was absolutely delicious.  It had prawns,  anchovies, basil, parsley, lots of garlic and freshly grated Parmesan cheese.    
Two version were made, this one was for the Oldies it was cooked with white wine

This version was for the Kids, no white wine but still very yummy

Everyone's favorite deep-fried crabs


My favorite suahe

Dad's favorite kinilaw na tanigue

Another favorite of Dad, shredded green mangoes with bagoong

Another New Year's gift  from Tita F. this time a fluffy sponge cake

And finally Mom's famous fruit salad
