NOCHE BUENA 2012

Noche Buena is the Filipino feast on Christmas Eve. After attending or hearing the traditional Misa de Gallo families gathers and shares meal together varies from Menu which was serve, here our 2012 Noche Buena!

My BROCCOLI CREAM SOUP

My Broccoli Cream Soup with brown bread croutons. I just cut into cubes some of brown bread then rolled in melted butter.
Very nutritious and satisfying, this cream of broccoli soup recipe makes for a quick and easy meal. With fresh boiled broccoli, some coconut milk, milk and whip cream. Its velvety smooth texture, along with a subtly fresh, creamy flavor, will make this pureed soup a favorite with broccoli lovers.

GARLIC-TENDERLOIN with WILD RICE and VEGETABLES

For main course I prepared GARLIC-TENDERLOIN with WILD RICE and VEGATABLES.
Sirloin or tenderloin is the most tender, finest and most expensive piece of meat in cattle. It is a long, fish-shaped piece of meat surrounded by shimmering skin and fat, and consists of the tenderloin pin, the center piece and the sirloin tip. The piece is primarily about English fillets or steaks, also used for all other types of chips, since it is particularly suited for the rapid preparation. The Vetables are composed of Broccoli, Cauliflower, Zucchini, and Carrots. Boiled and rolled a little bit in melted butter and seasoned with “Magic Sarap” from the Philippines. ๐Ÿ™‚

PANNA COTTA CARAMEL and BLUEBERRY

And for Dessert I have Panna Cotta Caramel and Panna Cotta Blueberry. I used Agar-Agar from the Philippines instead of Gelatin. Panna cotta is one of the most popular Italian desserts. The classic recipe is made with cream, sugar, vanilla and gelatin. Since I like to avoid gelatin, I tried this recipe once with agar-agar. Here’s the variant panna cotta without gelatin, with which I had success. And for blueberry I added Blueberry Marmalade which I bought from IKEA!

In the future you will know from me a three-course meal blogging, and then calculation of the cost. And the result of many great menu suggestions. From simple “cheap menu” to “gourmet meals”. And now enjoy reading the summary of this which I cooked for my family on Noche Buena. ๐Ÿ™‚
