Thanksgiving Dinner


Oh my goodness, it has been forever since I made a post -bows in apology-
I have been very busy with school and work so I have not had enough time to cook anything.
 This month, we had an early Thanksgiving dinner on the same day of my great-grandmother's memorial...so...there was a lot of food! Along the veggie dishes my mom and I made, there were also pork roast, turkey and all the fixings! I even attempted a pumpkin chiffon pie but I think I'll just stick to cheesecakes and fruit pies from now on hehe ;)


Some things on the menu were crab soup, veggie curry, veggie chicken and mushrooms, Korean vermicelli stir-fry and some spring rolls.
The Thanksgiving menu included Herb Roasted Turkey, Apple and Cheddar Stuffed Pork Roast (adapted), Scallop potatoes, mashed Sweet potatoes (1:1 yam and russet), Tex-Mex cornmeal cheese scones, red rice stuffing, cranberry salsa, and turkey gravy.
The chiffon pumpkin pie I made is a 'light' twist on the traditional, heavy custard pie which I turned into a sheet pie. However, I think I'll stick with cheesecakes and fruit pies...enough said haha!
