Sunday Love and Homemade Coffee Jelly

4:43 PM Mayen Acebron 12 Comments

I love weekend especially Sunday because I get to be with my family. I always want Sunday not to end when we’re together. Sunday with my family also means eating non-stop the whole day. My mom’s favorite expression every Sunday: “Hindi matigil ang mga bibig nyo kakanguya”. Now how do I translate that in English? It’s something like, “You guys can’t stop chewing food”.  I think you get the point. This Sunday we had pancit, biko, fruit salad and homemade coffee jelly.

I love Starbucks coffee jelly, mainly because I love jelly per se and I’m addicted to coffee. So last Sunday, my sister, ate joy (second sibling) and I teamed up to make homemade coffee jelly.


She cooked the jelly and I prepared the drinks. Since the kids aren’t allowed to drink coffee yet and we don’t have decaf at home, I used chocolate a.k.a Milo for their drinks. They loved it. My niece even tweeted me to thank me for the drinks. 

Sweet eh?

For the grown-ups, well, we used instant coffee...

  5. Ooooh, I love the idea of making coffee jelly. I'll check out the recipe and would give it a go in summer. =)

    Hayz, I miss my family. Lagi na lang sa Skype ang bonding namin. Pero kami rin ganyan kapag nagkakasama - wala ng tigil sa kakakain! So looking forward to the next time na makasama ko ulit sila! =)

  10. my sundays are usually like this too. Come to think of it, I think most Filipino families are! My Sundays are spent with family at a mall for lunch, then coffee and desserts at home.. then dinner. It is the family reunion that makes everything delicious and worthy. :)
