No it was not mainly pumpkin for every dish but we had to use up the pumpkin from the patch, right?
Any reason to do another get together he he!
plus we had to scrimp on our dine outs
Pumpkin being carved, er sliced up for the Pumpkin Soup
* Chef at home... Couldn't have it any better
* PUMPKIN SOUP*
Bacon preferably(we used ham)
onion, salt and pepper
* Pumpkin Soup by the bowl
I had to feed the chef just so he'd be inspired so I made...
Finally got acquainted with my rice cooker/ slow cooker/ steamer :)
Some Veggies to keep the balance,
* FRESH ASPARAGUS*
Salt and Pepper
...and my contribution is the Spaghetti I saw feature in KrisTV
TFC has some perks, you know... I had my reservation with this recipe and had my fingers crossed the whole time I made this. You see, this spaghetti has something that we never considered to put in a spaghetti...
LIVER SPREAD. Hubby was hovering while this was being cooked saying again and again to lessen the liver spread. I did lessen and it did not tasted like liver spread at all... Hurray! It was actually good if I had to say so myself...
*SPAGHETTI ALA JULIA*
½ kilo of ground pork
1 pack of spaghetti sauce or tomato sauce
½ cup spicy ketchup
1 can of liver spread
½ cup of cheese
½ cup butter
5-8 cloves garlic, minced
1 medium sized onion, chopped
1 red bell pepper
Salt and pepper
Put butter on the pan. Butter will serve as the cooking oil, add onion and garlic. Pre-mix liver spread into 1 cup of water. Put ground pork, let it cook first then mix the spicy ketchup, tomato sauce and the liver spread mixture. Let it simmer, then add mushrooms, hotdogs and bell pepper. Salt, pepper and sugar to taste. Then put the cheese into the sauce.
* RIBEYE in CHIMICHURRI*
Marinate the cooked to perfection.
* Corn on the Foil*
* FRIED EGGPLANT with GROUND BEEF*
( Mama Maria's Contribution)
* Our spread that evening
It was really fun to cook together and eat together.
The best part was we enjoyed the experience of messing up the kitchen and cleaning up after.
Not the same when we just do it for ourselves.
