Christmas…you are just a few days away. I can’t believe I was worrying about how I’d celebrate this Christmas a few months ago…I was wondering if I would have any extra money to buy the food I’ll prepare for our Noche Buena, I was not sure if I’d have enough so I can take my family to the mall for the usual after Christmas movie and dinner treat. And now, you are here. I can hear the kids with their homemade drums and tamborine as they bang away, happily singing their hearts out…
This afternoon, while I cooked my chicken feet adobo, I turned on the portable piano I bought for my Mom about five years ago one December evening. She told me she wanted to learn how to play the piano, so I bought her an electronic keyboard. Dad, in his rare lucid moment was able to express his question about Ma, really learning how to play. (Dad is a stroke patient and until now, he has difficulty talking).
Ma has her bucket list and it includes piano playing. Well, the piano is waiting.
I have mine too, and my list ALWAYS involves the kitchen. This year, my newest recipe is chicken feet adobo. I have a list of what I’ll experiment on before the year is over and will definitely post the results here and on my facebook album: Lily’s wok.
WordPress is telling me that today is my second year anniversary with wordpress, when I registered this blog. Well, I have some delectable chicken feet adobo to feast on.
Here’s the chicken feet adobo. Bon appetit!
