I bet yare (This is what the iPad thought I meant when I typed “you are”. Is today Pirate Day?) wondering how in the heeze we did a Chinese-American Thanksgiving. Well folks, it took some man/woman-power to get it all to come together.
Not only was it a clash of cultures, but we had to have all low-fat recipes as well. Talk about a logistic nightmare, but we did it!
The Chinese side of things:
-deep fried turkey (hellooooo juicy taste bomb)
-cha siu bao aka steamed buns filled with BBQ pork
-not-so-low-fat egg rolls
-magosteens, guava, and persimmon
-sticky rice, which I never actually got a chance to stuff myself with
The American side of things:
-potato soup (kinda the star of the show. I will never need mashed taters again)
-wild rice stuffing (better cold, the day after)
-roasted veggies (I read the recipe wrong and these tasted like garbage)
-not-so-low-fat pumpkin cheesecake bars (I die)
Did you do anything unconventional this year? What are some of your outside the box favorites?
