Dinner November 23rd

OK, I think we know what most of our American friends will be eating tonight. I'm interested in what the rest of you are doing for dinner. This could be a very QUIET thread today. LOL!!

Its snowing again and is colder than ...um... its really cold out there. I'm thinking either a hearty stew (must decide on chicken or beef) or chili. I'm also going to bake today. I'll do probably a rhubarb crisp or pie and some kind of cookie. I've got shortbread in my head right now and maybe some of my squishy gingerbread cookies. Madeleine has her early dismissal day today and I know she would get a kick out of cutting out some shapes.

Leftover Mexican Tinga with rice instead of tortillas. Side salad.

Then I'm off to my ladies group where there will be birthday cake and other goodies ;-)

Multi-Cultural Thanksgiving Dinner

Hey, I am glad to show off my Thanksgiving feast!

I am visiting family in California this week. I am showing off my Okinawa Sweet Potato Pie to my family and friends. (having trouble to load photo here)

We are going to have five-spice flavored roasted turkey (my sister marinated it over 2 nights ago. I am excited to taste, because it smells good), Lion's Head (Chinese dish = chicken meatballs with bok choy), mixed fruit and jello cocktail (fruit punch) and my favorite Purple Yam Pie (I'm having hard time to work in someone's kitchen). My brother was going to make potato salad, but he overcooked the patato. Now, he is making Gnocchi. Hmmm....

Some friends will bring their specialties to the dinner. It will be a very interesting multi-cultural thanksgiving dinner that I'd ever had.
Eat. Drink. Be Merry. Live Long. Prosper.

Allen, your menu looked something like ours - at least the number of dishes. I was honestly so overwhelmed I didn't eat so much, the better for me I'm sure. I only ate a tiny piece of pie also. It was nice not to have to cook, and we enjoyed being with family.
