Back to Reality

So a quick break from the philippines blogging....
we had all of david's family over for Filipino food and picture showing and story telling about our trip. we invited them all over to our little humble house and i cooked some traditional filipino food and mary made delicious desserts and everyone seemed to have an awesome time. (lol i said awesome) just in case you don't already know david has a big family and almost everyone came to our house and our house isnt very big at all. though it is bigger then our apt in california. so what did she cook...thats the question everyone is asking. I made a filipino food called Lumpia which is like a small egg roll, but it hass meat only in the center with a delicious flavoring of garlic, onion and soy sauce. Then you fry them up and dip them into duck sauce as Uncle John called it...i like to call it sweet and sour sauce. The main dish was served over rice and it was something we had for breakfast in the philippines, except here they dont have ground pork so i made it with ground beef...a blend of savory seasons and carrots, corn, potatoes, zucchinni, raisins and water chestnuts. (i actually forgot the water chestnuts) I am very excited that i could make a meal for 25 people and not run out of food...and even have enough drinks too thanks to Aunt Sheri. All in all a great time was had by all.
