Too Much Stuffing but Just Enough Thanksgiving
Successfully cooked a full Thanksgiving Dinner on my tiny little stove and 1/3 size of normal oven. Invitees included Germans, Chinese, Thai, and Burmese friends/neighbors/students.
Missed my sister though. Of course my sons and my mom, too, but it's my sister and I who always laughed our way through Thanksgiving preparations - a glass of wine in hand -- I was always the stuffing and pie expert, she's the "presentation" queen. So this year my "presentation" left a wee bit to be desired, but oh well.
I was proud of my roasted carrots (in lieu of sweet potatoes) which had specks of the only thing I was able to harvest successfully from my Hong Kong "garden" - dill weed! The easy recipe is here.
Only down side to this event -- I so stuffed myself with that fabulous (if I do say so myself) stuffing that I was up walking in the night. Note to self: it's a bad sign when your 17 year old son stops eating before you do.
