Christmas Dinner.


It has been a tiring day… but I gotta say, it was all worth it.

My mom usually cooks for us, especially during special occasions.  However, this year – today – I felt it was my turn to cook and serve dinner.  I didn’t plan anything really special, but everything was made from scratch and of course from the heart! LOL

Menu

Preparation came early.  Since I am making everything from scratch, some of the items I needed to prepare in advance – like the Homemade Pomodoro.  Honestly, I was having second thoughts while I was doing this, but I was halfway done peeling the blanched tomatoes!  There’s no going back! Hahaha  After the “tomato obstacle”, everything was easy peasy.  The peeling and de-seeding took longer than the actual cooking!

Most of what I cooked we have already cooked in school except the Chicken Parmigiano.  It was an experiment — that really received great feedback!  So I’m happy!

Sadly, the cheesecake didn’t make it on time.  That was a last minute decision.  It needs to set overnight before I can serve it.  This will have to wait until tomorrow. 🙂  Now, I can rest and wait until midnight to celebrate my birthday!

Merry Christmas, everyone!
