Ah, a good eating weekend.
We had Thanksgiving dinner at Ron’s parents’ home in Millbrae. My family came and also some of our “homeless” friends so we had a pretty big group.
Ron did quite a bit of the food preparation on Thanksgiving day but thank goodness Ron’s mom did most of the grocery shopping the few days before.
He prepared ribs and a beef roast.
Our friends brought over the turkey fryer. It took about an hour to cook our ~15 lb turkey.
While the cooking was still being done, we just hung out and play Wii. We got the new game Raving Rabbids TV Party. It’s a pretty fun game but your arms would be very tired after playing for too long.
Our deep fried turkey. Yummy and juicy!
Marinated cucumbers. One of Ron’s mom’s best dishes.
I prepared these lemon tarts for dessert. I used Splenda to make the crust and part of the lemon cream. The Splenda gave the crust a very dry texture so I don’t think I’ll be doing that again.
Our big dinner party ready to eat!
After dinner Texas Hold’em game.
Enjoying a cup of tea after a big meal.
I miss living in a home to host a Thanksgiving but at least it’s good our parents will let us use their homes 🙂
Can’t wait to use my turkey bones to make porridge!
