Nontraditional Thanksgiving Fare
Mom made sure that my Filipino food craving was satisfied at Thanksgiving by offering a variety of my most favorite Filipino dishes. We had pancit…
…which I am not really a fan of, unless you lace it with jackfruit and serve it a la mode. Vanilla ice cream makes everything ten times better. LOL. No offense to my mom, because she really does make good turon.
Mom also made fruit salad and macaroni salad.
Jen Teves’ friend, Georgia, made a couple of dishes that they serve in Cyprus where she is is originally from. She made a main dish and a dessert dish that resembles what we call maja blanca in the Philippines.
We also had some American foods like ham, turkey, stuffing, and corn on the cob, just to cover all the bases.
Ate Lou made pumpkin cake.
Jen Teves brought cake from Bagatelle.
Ching did not make anything. LOL. I brought some wine for everyone to enjoy (but mostly Jen Teves and me because we have similar taste in wines) and also champagne for our mimosas.
I picked up Korbel Sweet Rose from Extremo Vino at Shane’s recommendation and it turned out really well. I will have to remember that one.
As if that weren’t enough, we had Thanksgiving part deux at the Feifel’s. Needless to say, we ate way too much that day. I’m amazed that I didn’t fall asleep at the wheel on the drive to Kansas City.
