It’s been a day over a week since Thanksgiving. But that won’t stop me from showing you the oh-so-yummy feast we enjoyed. Most of the dishes, save for two, were prepared by my very dear friend. Ready? I just want to warn you that you’ll probably need a colon cleanse after looking at the photos. Hee hee.
Days before Thanksgiving, I constantly reminded my friend, Bet, that there will only be 3 adults and 4 kids who will be partaking of the Thanksgiving feast this year. That said, I told her to just cook a small turkey. She listened and even skipped the turkey all together. However, she cooked 6 Cornish hens instead!!! Hardheaded girl, I tell you!
Here are our heavenly side dishes:
When Bet asked what I wanted her to cook for Thanksgiving, I had a ready answer…RICE STUFFING…HER rice stuffing. It
Buttered Sweet Corn. Su-weeeeet! ;)
For dessert, Bet made apple fritters and topped them with Blue Bell’s homemade vanilla ice cream.
For my part, I brought these two…
My tried and tested homemade shrimp shumai, the recipe for which you can find HERE.
And for dessert, I made a Thanksgiving harvest of a cake. This is my favorite cake to make, which Bet really really loves..Mocha Chiffon topped with peaches and fresh strawberries…filled and frosted with Creme Chantilly that never falls apart. ;)
Ahhhh. What a feast! Even I get hungry all over again after looking at these photos. Our Thanksgiving feasting didn’t end there. We had two more feasts on Thanksgiving week…one was intimate – a family celebration of Hubby’s birthdays – while the other was shared with our good friends. More feasts in upcoming posts.
Have a great weekend, y’all!
