The Thanksgiving Feast That Was

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!

All 6 were moist and juicy oven-baked yumminess. *burp*

Here are our heavenly side dishes:

Green beans with caramelized onions and cremini mushrooms cooked in bacon fat and topped with crunchy bacon. Healthy or not? :P It doesn’t really matter…not on Thanksgiving Day! :D

When Bet asked what I wanted her to cook for Thanksgiving, I had a ready answer…RICE STUFFING…HER rice stuffing. It

Creamy mashed potatoes topped with fresh chives and black pepper. Top it further with homemade gravy and you’ve got yourself the best mashed potatoes this side of Texas.

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!

  2. This food all looks fantastic. My partner and I are Americans in New Zealand. We just had a big Thanksgiving party, but rain threatened to spoil it! We were expecting over 90 people!
