Family Thanksgiving

I hope that fruit is self-explanatory. -___-"   


Something red, soy beans, and something meaty -___-;; 

Corn bread, sweet potato casserole, homemade sushi, and mashed potatoes 

Yep... a LOT of food!

Potato salad 


Green beans 

Fried rice 

  Spicy, pickled cucumbers

 More homemade sushi!

Chips and homemade guacamole 

Homemade leek pies - yum! (Available at Chef Liu, among other places.)

Tofu and veggies

Sweet potato dish #2

Salad with homemade vinaigrette dressing

Mixed veggies

My plate

Pumpkin soup

Family Turkey Day was early this year. Normally, my stepmom makes two turkeys (one American-style, one Asian-style), but she didn't have enough time this year to get the turkeys let alone defrost them. So, the turkey plate was brought from somewhere. I'm not exactly sure where, but I don't really question whenever food magically appears out of nowhere. ^_^"

As you can tell, there's a mix of Asian and American dishes. This is how it's always done in our household. I believe we had between 15 and 18 people at the table at any given time including family, friends of the family, and random strangers. (Kidding!) A few dishes were brought by others, but the majority of the cooking was done by my stepmom. Every year she says she's not going to do it again and every year... she does it again. :oD We love it!
