To be honest, we haven’t got the chance to visit many places this month because we had many family events to attend. Therefore, we would just like to share some of our photos from Pinky’s family’s Thanksgiving food spread. Don’t worry, Victor was also there!
It’s true that this will be the rare post where you see so much featured seafood…This was definitely the one Thanksgiving where Victor and I did not eat that much. Also, what wasn’t photographed was the steak that we quickly ate, since it was so delicious. I have grown up to eat steak with bearnaise sauce. For those of you who are not familiar it is a yellowish sauce that is made out of butter, egg yolks, white wine vinegar, and herbs. I absolutely adore eggs, so it was no surprise that I literally want to drink (eew) it.
The dragonfruit prosciutto was strange for me, Victor liked it more than I did. I thought the fruit was too mushy and I didn’t enjoy the sweet and salty. BlEGH.
I actually LOVE the cuttlefish pasta (over regular pasta), but this time I couldn’t eat much of it because there was clam sauce over it. Before we would just have the cuttlefish pasta over some nice juicy steaks…I guess my dad didn’t care that I was allergic! haha =).
Thanksgiving is never about the food (right?), but about the family and conversations you have over the dinner table. I would say that I am grateful to have family and friends around me, food in my stomach, as well as a roof over my head everyday.
So this year, I had the pleasure of visiting Pinky’s family this year for Thanksgiving. There was so many types of food and I felt like I was at a restaurant. There was lot I didn’t eat… because it was seafood. I thought the Dragon fruit wrapped with Prosciutto rather interesting. Its salty yet sweet. It’s hard to describe dragon fruit I guess. It’s texture is like a kiwi, but it’s not as sweet. The fruit itself is actually quite beautiful.
I also got try some lamb chops. I don’t really eat lamb too often, so it was sort of a new experience for me. I felt like it had a metallic taste to it. It was interesting, it didn’t really taste like the other red meats I’ve had before. It looked like a steak… but not really… so I guess it just confused my taste buds. Lastly, I got to eat a REAL steak. Pinky’s family bought like 20+ steaks. I’ve never seen that much steak all at once. It was cooked to medium and it was absolutely delicious. There’s nothing better than a home-cooked meal. If you readers didn’t know, steaks are my favorite!
Yet again, Thanksgiving isn’t just about the food. It should be more about spending time with family and friends as well as being grateful for what you have.
