Somehow I managed to catch a cold over the weekend so it hasn’t been the best finish to the week. I’m also a bit paranoid that it will be pneumonia again but so far it doesn’t seem as bad.
But anyway we had a nice week despite all the smoke and haze from the fire – luckily the rain took care of that!
The husband took the week off and we got to do things like take the kids to the cinema to watch The Grinch, play tennis together, have nice meals, and also figure out our first American thanksgiving dinner. We’ve always done hotpot for thanksgiving, which, judging from the number of people buying thinly sliced meats from Mitsuwa, is common among Asian-American families. But this time with my mum visiting, I thought a proper turkey dinner should be the way.
I chickened out and ordered a whole roasted one from Boston Market though!
But cooked everything else. There was oven-roasted Brussels sprouts and asparagus, a meringue-topped sweet potato casserole, homemade cranberry sauce, French fries and my mum made pumpkin pie.
And yes we have leftovers. I’ve been thinking of making turkey pasties. What do you do with leftovers?
The Final Table
Leftovers. What else?
I’ve been drinking and drinking mug after mug of tea and warm water in a bid to help hasten my recovery.
Maybe a Mac and cheese w turkey.
Working on a scarf as well as hexagons which I’m hoping to turn into a cover for the piano
