I spent Christmas Day with my family!
We do not celebrate on Christmas Eve but on the day itself.
My friends thought that I have been cooking a feast for Christmas!
But we only like to eat.....
We ordered a lechon de Leche ( about 8-10 kilos in size) good for our small family of 6 adults, 2 teen-aged girls and one little boy.
I think everybody knows that I only like to eat the crunchy skin and the ribs.
My Ate also likes the skin.
I was so happy when my nieces asked me to carve the meat for them! Yay! That meant more skin for us!
I also cooked Sotanghon soup. I used all the chicken bones I saved from the Relleno orders I cooked. The broth was very tasty and I did not use any artificial flavoring.
The Dinuguan came with the Lechon.
I loved the Shrimp Ukoy From Ate.
I have the recipe but cannot recall if I've written a post about it.
We had our dessert at PD's house.
Gift opening was also upstairs.
It was a looooong afternoon! We finished with the opening of Christmas gifts at 5:00 p.m. We had to watch as each family member, from the youngest to the oldest, open their presents!
It was a tiring day but Christmas is really happier spent with the family.

Merry Christmas from my Darling baby boy!
