What’s for Merienda?

Last Saturday 27 of my classmates had a dance rehearsal for our upcoming homecoming. I was there just to shoot the video and take pictures. No dancing for me!

As usual some kind souls brought merienda or afternoon snack for the tired dancers. There was no plan on who will bring what. So I was very impressed with the food they brought. The white plastic bag on the left is a giant bag of chicharon (pork rind) that Florence brought.

Someone brought these yummy brown puto. I wasn’t able to try it but I heard raves about it.

All the food were store bought or ordered except for this walnut and raisin bread pudding super mom, Janet baked. She must cook and bake with her eyes closed. I don’t know where she finds time since her days aare packed with activities. As usual it was excellent.

Cherry brought 2 boxes of beef patties from De Original Jamaican Pattie Shop. They’re my favorite.

Mimi brought her aunt’s special homemade shark’s fin dumplings and Yvonne brought the siomai. It was very good and two baskets were all wiped out.

Deb ordered 2 big bilaos of Red Ribbon’s pancit palabok.

The discovery of the day was the cassava cake Cef brought. They were still warm when we opened and ate all three boxes she brought. It was very sticky and different from any cassava cake I’ve ever eaten. It also had some strips of coconut mixed in it and some grated cheese on top. It also wasn’t very sweet which is always a plus. Everyone loved the cassava cake. Thanks Cef for introducing this to us.

I was a good girl since I only had 1 dumpling, a bite of the bread pudding, and some cassava cake. It’s not that I didn’t like the food it was because I was still full from having lunch at Asian Twist. Db and I went straight to the rehearsals from lunch. Even though we were full we still had our fill of the yummy cassava cake. Our batch motto is work hard, eat harder.
