We had our annual Thanksgiving Dinner today. It was great spending time with the friends that have become our extended Japan family.
I did the turkey, made two pies, quick pickled beets and some stuffing. Friends brought potato salad (purple potatoes too), quiche, bread and cheese, green salad and roasted kabocha squash. Delicious.
I don’t have any new thanksgiving recipes because at Thanksgiving and Christmas I make the same thing every year. My mom perfected turkey dinner (in my opinion) and I make everything as close as I can to the way she does.
Dessert was pumpkin pie and pumpkin cake. Actually, both were made with kabocha but it doesn’t have the same ring to it. The Keitai Goddess made the cake using my recipe and it tasted better than when I make it.
