Pinoy Spaghetti!

As tradition in the Catholic community, people will celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ on Easter Sunday. I celebrated my Easter Sunday with my family in Palo Beach in Baras, previously mentioned in my post. This time, there were a lot of people also celebrating the festivities. It is said that Easter Sunday should be celebrated as grand as Christmas, because it was the day that our Lord Jesus Christ has defeated death and saved mankind. Locally, Easter Sunday is also called Hallelujah - meaning God be praised. Hallelujah or alleluia because God has shown his glory through his ascension to heaven on that very day.

We had a reservation on a cottage the day before, because it's sure that people will flock the beach. The food we brought were Spaghetti, Pork and Beef Steak, Pork and Chicken Barbecue, Vegetable Lumpia, we also grilled Tilapia and Milk fish, rice of course, and had some beer and tuba, also known as palm wine. 

We went to the beach around 7:40AM. When we arrived, we immediately hit breakfast. My dad said, this was the first time he had spaghetti for breakfast. My mom's spaghetti, without a doubt is the best spaghetti in the whole world. Not just because she's my mom or I've been used to the spaghetti, but because I really love its flavor. That's why on this post, I will show you guys how to make one with our family's recipe.
