Welcome 2014

Please bring us your sweet blessings and good cheer ...




Its been a tradition in my family to spend New Year's Eve at home so that we can fully welcome the new year with open arms, and family togetherness. We usually prepare our media noche fare by 9-10pm of December 31st since there's just three of us at home so it doesn't take much time. Firecrackers are definitely a no-no for us but we light candles instead.

Our Media Noche - seafood pasta with salted egg tomato sauce, chocolate cake, cheese (Marca Pato & American Heritage) & melba toasts (Bizu), fruits, chocolates, bottle of red (Merlot), white (Sauvignon) and orange (Del Monte). Happy New Year !!!



The highlight of our media noche is the chocolate cake (thank you Ola and S&R). It was just a plain chocolate cake (Choco Ecstasy) that I decorated with slices of strawberries (Driscoll's) and kiwi. Yummy!

  1. The fresh fruits really elevated the cake! How was the cake? I've never bought cakes from S & R kasi I'm not sure if they're any good. :)

    1. Hi sis. Yeah, the fruits really made the choco cake more appealing. I just need to learn food styling! hahaha. As for the cake, it was quite good. First time also to taste the Choco Ecstasy because we always get the Ghirardelli Choco Cake. Cakes at S&R are also cheaper compared to other cake shops :)

    1. The fruits added some flavor to the otherwise predictable chocolate cake. It tasted better after staying overnight in the fridge. Happy New Year. Cheers!
