Had Thanksgiving dinner at my sister’s new place today and here are just a few of the delicious things that I ate way too much of tonight…
our appetizer, stuffed mushrooms…not home-made…bought from costco, but i must say still so yummy. and i’m not the hugest fan of mushrooms either.
Butternut Squash soup made by my sister-in-law, Christine. She let us drizzle our own yogurt on top in a design of our choice. This is my bowl…and not to brag, but my yogurt turned out the prettiest ;] Apparently it was so much work that Christine is never going to make it again..which is a shame because it was gooood.
Now, a real Thanksgiving dinner (in my family at least) has not just turkey, but steak and duck as well. We broiled the steak (top sirloin) in our oven for about 5 min each side with nothing but a bit of steak seasoning. Turned out perfectly medium…although I prefer it to be medium-rare :] The duck…we bought from some Asian market.
My packed plate with pretty much everything. Mashed potatoes and gravy, cornbread stuffing, mac & cheese, cranberry sauce, parisian salad with fresh mango and Asian pear, oven roasted asparagus, steak, turkey, Beijing-style wrapped duck, and, of course, a crescent rolls. We also had some corn bread but we forgot about it in the oven..and it turned out a bit overcooked for our liking…aka we burned it.
Dessert! This picture really doesn’t do my sister’s trifle justice. It was layers of chocolate cake, chocolate pudding, fresh rasberries, and whipped cream, with some shots of espresso. Sooo yummy.
Also in my family, we never have just one dessert. Home-made pumpkin pie (also by my sister). We had all this with some home-made eggnog lattes too!
As you can probably guess from all the pictures…I ate to my heart’s content….and then I ate some more. And now it’s 11:41pm and I am still full and will not be sleeping anytime soon. Goodnight friends.
