Whenever my family would have something to celebrate for, we usually gather in a place where we could really feast. We usually do it at home and the one thing that can really make the celebration more alive is the food and always the food. I really enjoy the time not only that we are all together but its the best opportunity for us ladies of the house to let everybody in the family taste something that we prepare. We always make it sure that we will try a new dish when we are together then the fun and togetherness would always end up for everybody to be joyful and tummy-full!

You try it with your family too where you are going to experiment a new recipe every time there is something to celebrate. Why won't you try this recipe and your family will be always looking for a chance to make everyday a reason for another celebration!
