Turkey day

Posted by quirksalight on December 6, 2008

Thanksgiving…funny… I haven’t missed it, in the years I have lived away from my family since this year. The food, and the mashup of family members under one roof was interesting to say the least.

I snagged a turkey, courtesy of a friend of mine who lives on base (in Korea, a turkey can run 80,000 – 100,000 won), and an oven (took over other friend’s apt) to throw a Thanksgiving lunch.

Two trips to bring over all the food and materials, cooking for hours with friends:

Rosmary/garlic rubbed Turkey
mashed sweet potatoes
Buttermilk biscuits
Sauteed potatoes & mushrooms
pies – too many to count!
cinnamon apples
stir fry veggies
seafood patties
cous cous with garlic-veggie topping
Sweet potatoe-squash soup

And wine. Lots of wine….

It was awesome! People just relaxing, eating, and eating some more, all the while, chatting, playing with the dogs, and laughing. 🙂
