My 2015 Christmas recipes
…which is to say, not my personal recipes but the recipes I’ll be doing this Christmas. 🙂 I just literally got back from the supermarket and it was a very tiring experience. It seemed that everyone was bent on finishing their grocery shopping just in time for noche buena so the atmosphere was very hectic. The traffic on the way was also reduced to a snarl in some parts of the road; you can imagine how that added to the stress.
Anyway, now that that’s over, let me share the recipes I’ll be doing tomorrow and on Christmas Day:
Here’s a tip especially for those who are not seasoned cooks: don’t wait until a few days before Christmas before deciding on which recipe to try. That’s what I did this year, and boy did I end up stressing about which sumptuous dish to attempt with the clock relentlessly ticking. I considered doing lengua estofado but then ditched the idea when I saw how complex the process was. After a few hours of deliberation, I decided to go basic and do an embutido.
Embutido is a Filipino-style meatloaf. You can do a pork embutido, which is more common, but I’m going to do a tuna embutido come December 25. My recipe is from Panlasang Pinoy Meaty Recipes and it seems doable enough for cooking neophytes such as myself.
Itsy Bitsy Chocolate Chip Cookies
I’m also going to do one other recipe this week. I got it from this lovely cooking site called 101 Cookbooks. Chocolate chip cookies are a lot of people’s comfort food, and what’s Christmas but the comforting presence of loved ones amidst much loved treats, right?
I’ve baked cookies successfully in the past, so I’m fairly confident that I’ll be able to come up with edible treats tomorrow, haha! I’m not sure how tiny I’ll be making my cookies, though. That might take too much time, and we all know how scarce time is during the holidays. We’ll see.

I usually only blog every other week, so this post might, in all likelihood, be my last one this year. Thus, I’d like to wish all of you a happy and healthy holiday season!! 🙂
