It is that time of year where I stuff myself all day and feel no guilt. Because on Thanksgiving Day, I have much to feel blessed about and I like to share that with family. I don’t have a big family, I wish I did, but I cook like I have a huge family. This year since I spent Thanksgiving in Hong Kong, I decided to mix it up and cook both traditional Western dishes as well as some popular Chinese dishes a la Shen. I would like to share some pictures with you in this blog and show you all the dishes I made for the evening. My next three posts in will focus on my favorite three dishes and the recipes for them. I won’t tell you which ones, I know, sneaky aren’t I? That is because I want the element of surprise for the rest of this week! Come back for those recipes, you hear?
Baked Four Cheese Macaroni
Shanghainese Onion Duck with Sticky Rice Stuffing – since we were not successful in locating a turkey this year, we decided on a duck substitute!
Baked Yam and Marshmallows
Portugese Grilled Fish x 2
Shanghainese Spare Rib Sticky Rice wrapped in Bamboo Leaves
Note: I apologize in advance for the poor photography on these dishes. I really was in a rush to get it all ready and on time. Which means I had to sacrifice the quality of my pictures. I still wanted to share it all with you so hope you don’t mind.
