This is probably our most non-fussed NYE preparations. I usually have a lot of things up my sleeve during NY celebrations because the event calls for an abundant table. It is Filipino tradition to have a lot of food on the table such as fruits (should be at least 12 different ones to signify each month of the year), something sweet and sticky, something noodly (for long life) and some meat (Lechon or Ham). For this year, we went on the minimal side of things. I’m so relaxed from our Christmas week holiday that I wanted to continue being one til New Year.
I baked Turkey Ham. Compared to my former baked hams, this was the smallest but definitely the fastest one to bake. Saved us time and electricity.
For something sticky, we bought Leche Flan instead of cooking Biko (which I did last year).
And of course, the fruits! We’ve got 15 different fruits that completed our simple but abundant table.
