Woke up to another cold morning and it is raining again.  I wonder when I’ll get to see the sun’s face again in all  its glory. I wonder if we’ll spend Christmas day like this one.

I spent sometime yesterday planning  what to prepare for our Noche Buena.  I have actually cooked two kilos of embutido the other day and  put  it in the freezer. Embutido is our Filipino version of meatloaf which is cooked by steaming.  It consists of ground pork, raisins, sausage, cheese, eggs, pickle relish, carrots and other seasonings. You can freeze it for  more  than just a month and it does not lose its flavor.  Of course, fruit, macaroni or potato salad won’t be left behind since Mom is here.  She loves anything that spells S-A-L-A-D. And  pasta dishes  and sweet delicacies won’t be left behind.   Nissa is on a Keto diet and she does not eat carbohydrates so sometimes I find it hard to prepare something for her. We always have rice in our every meal so it’s a no, no for her.  Aside from attending the Christmas  Eve mass, sharing the Noche Buena feast at midnight, we have the opening of gifts to look forward to and Nate  is the happiest kid around.   He could only clutch his gifts and does a guessing game before he opens them with gusto.

Got his first trophy at five.  I’m envious  but he deserves it after eight sessions of workshop and that lovely fashion  show in the end.  A proud  Nonna obviously.
