I decided to have a Filipino Friendsgiving this year.  We started out with Lumpia that didn't look great but were absolutely scrumptious.  that recipe will be coming soon to a blog near you. We enjoyed them with cocktails while my pork was cooking in the Instant Pot and my rice was in the steamer. I braised some baby bok choy while we visited with our friends.

This was a wonderful and fun way to celebrate good friends and it is quick and easy enough to serve up for dinner during the busy weekdays.
