I invited everyone in the core group of the ministry I am part of – Singles@Work to have the continuation of our planning and meeting at my place over dinner.
I prepared two main dishes which are two of my favorites. I prepared a turbo whole chicken marinated in salt, pepper, calamansi, oregano, some seasoning and lemon grass. I let it soak for more than 2 hours. (I forgot to take a picture when it got cooked. )
I also prepared my specialty – spicy tuna pesto pasta. I usually buy a ready to mix pesto sauce but unfortunately the supermarket near my place ran out of it so I have to do the sauce from scratch, for the first time. I used my Magic Bullet blender to make the sauce. I mixed the fresh basil leaves (which I sooo love the smell!) with olive oil first, then, added chopped garlic and little bit of salt and pepper.
Then, I sauteed the tuna with onions. I mix Century Tuna Spicy and the one in Vegetable oil. After which, I added the pesto sauce I have made. I put in the pasta then added the nuts as last. I don’t like mixing the nuts when I do the sauce.
My visitors and their happy stomachs. 🙂
