Feast for Christmas

Christmas in the Philippines is usually celebrated with a feast on Christmas eve (24th December) which also coincides with my birthday. Since we weren't really expecting guests, my mom and I decided to prepare just a few dishes. We decided on a menu of pansit molo (you can grab the recipe here), chicken potato and beet salad, fried morcon, pineapple ham pieces (the retaso ham of Excellente Ham is actually quite good - this roughly translates to ham trimmings) and fruit salad for dessert.
