"Pancake House" Menu

Tonight was supposed to be Taco Night with Mona, I was inspired by  Lei's FB post when she had  Chillin' Mexican and Margarita.  I invited a few of my friends to join me for dinner.  What was supposed to be  Mexican dinner became a "Pancake House" menu. Tacos, salad, spaghetti, fried chicken and fresh mango shake.

Pinky brought 2 orders of Roca Salad from Cyma.  I'm glad that we are salad eaters now.  We are aiming for a healthier lifestyle.

Dra. Cristina,  brought Fried Chicken ... ummm  not so healthy because the chicken pieces were deep fried but still YUM!  Always welcome.

Mona made Flautas.  It was  the sister of Jing, Tricia,  who taught us how to make Flautas.  I was researching the net last night and told Mona to add corn kernels and roasted jalapeno peppers instead of raw jalapeno. 

Our experiment turned out really good!  While waiting for Dra. Cristina, Pinky, Mona and I were already enjoying the flautas, then there were only 5 pieces left.  I told them Cristina isn't fond of spicy food, so we were confident that the last few pieces would be ours!!!  But we were wrong.  She also loved it!!!

Chile Cheese Flautas with Corn

1 bar Eden cheddar cheese, coarsely grated
half a can of corn kernels
15 pcs. jalapeno peppers, broiled, peeled, deseeded and chopped
Big lumpia wrapper cut into quarters

Combine grated cheese, chopped jalapeno and corn kernel in a bowl.  Fill the lumpia wrapper with the mixture.  Deep fry.  Serve with garlic dip.

Garlic dip

1 sachet lady's Choice Mayonnaise
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
chili sauce

Combine all the ingredients in a small bowl.

I prepared Tacos with fresh Tomato Cilantro Salsa  and my favorite kind of spaghetti with the disgustingly sweet meat sauce ...  the only kind of spaghetti I love.

Mona also made Tunonitos... they are mini turon.  I asked her to put 3 pieces on each saucer and I put a scoop of vanilla ice cream  and drizzled chocolate syrup over it. 

We thought we couldn't eat anymore because we were stuffed but we all managed to polish off the dessert.

We even ate my Chocolate chip cookies while talking about our classmates who were not there, especially Jodie  hahahaha. 

We didn't notice that the time flew so fast, when we looked at our watches it was 1:30 am already!  We've set another date and hopefully, next time, more classmates could join us for a fun night of food and reminiscing about the past.
