Our Thanksgiving =)

Until a couple of years ago, I had never had an American-style Thanksgiving.  Of course, our family always got together for the holiday, but we’ve always had cultural food.  So until recently, I didn’t know what turkey tasted like, nor did I know what stuffing, mashed potatoes, or pie tasted like.  Now it’s become our tradition to do an American-style Thanksgiving with all the traditional dishes, and occasionally we might throw in a cultural dish here and there.

Asian-Style Salad Appetizer
Stuffing
Tiny Turkey

Every year we buy a standard size turkey, and every year we don’t know what to do with it.  Even with 5 adults, we could never finish the whole turkey.  Funny thing is, even after downgrading to this little guy this year, we still couldn’t finish it!

Apple Pie

As we’ve just started the American-style Thanksgiving, I ate my first pie only a year or two ago, and it’s always been pumpkin pie.  I was hesitant to try an apple pie, considering pies and apples aren’t exactly my favorite foods, so how would combining them be any better?  But I was pleasantly surprised.  Still not my favorite food, but not as bad as I thought it would be.

Jello

Yes, that’s not a turkey.  We didn’t have a large enough turkey mold, but we did have a miniature turkey mold…

More Jello

And of course we had some wine to top it all off =)

Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!
