what's for your noche buena?

We already planned what to prepare for Noche Buena later. A Noche Buena is a traditional Christmas dinner with the whole family.

In the Philippines, this usually comes after the entire family has attended the late evening Christmas Eve mass or Misa de Gallo. Often on the table are: lechón, pancit, fried chicken, hamon, quezo de bola, arroz caldo, lumpia, rice, and adobo among others for the main course. Desserts include ube halaya, bibingka, rice cakes, puto bumbong, ice cream, pastries and cakes; drinks include hot chocolate, coffee, soda, wine, beer, and different kind fruit juices. wikipedia.org
Have you planned your Noche Buena menu? Have a Merry Christmas everyone!

Di nawawala ang pansit sa lamesa namin tuwing noche buena sa Pilipinas ... Ngayong Nasa ibang bansa na ako, tuloy a rin ang pansit tradition! But walapa ring tatalo ang saya ng selebrasyon sa bansa natin.
