We normally only have two major celebrations on Christmas weekend: Christmas Eve with the Alonsos and Christmas Day with the Brubakers. This year Jen and Armando invited us to their house on Christmas Day also. It provided another opportunity to eat more Filipino food.
I didn’t get to take pictures of all of the dishes (and there were several) because we arrived late. It was seafood central at the Teves-Allison residence that day, though. Jen served the prawns pictured above, mussels, and at least two different fish dishes. Ferj made humba, which I loved because it had a ton of sabaw. Arvin made his signature dish lauya, which is like nilaga only a dozen times better. Instead of being somewhat bland like nilaga, it actually had really great flavor. I didn’t have it on Christmas Day, but I had some the day after when we came over to Jen and Armando’s for leftovers. It was super delicious! Both Ferj and Arvin did a fabulous job on their dishes.
Jen also had a pineapple chicken dish that was yummy and green beans and corn and a carrot salad. I’m sure there are several other dishes that I’m missing here. There was so much food at Jen and Armando’s, you’d think they were feeding all of Bel Aire. Anyway, I was so stuffed from all the eating I did on Christmas Eve and on Christmas morning that I didn’t really have room for any more food. I couldn’t pass up the prawns, though. I think I had six or seven of them. They were so good!
I also had the strawberry shortcake dessert and more mimosas. As though I hadn’t had enough from earlier that day. LOL. There was some really good eatin’ that took place over Christmas weekend. I can’t wait until next year to do it all over again!
