This year is the first time I’m spending Thanksgiving in Austin and by myself! My brother is in boarding school in Boston and my parents live in Hong Kong. For the previous 4 Thanksgivings, I went to Los Angeles once, Boston twice, and Toronto once.
I don’t “celebrate” Thanksgiving and I don’t eat/like turkey. I don’t like how it’s so dry tasting and it has tryptophan in it so it puts you to sleep. I was searching around for recipes and this is what I’m going to have on the night of Thursday November 26:
- Cheesy Potato Soup with Crispy Prosciutto
- Pomegranate Glazed Cornish Game Hen
- Rosemary Grilled Shrimp
I can still “celebrate” Thursday as a special night for myself. I need some vegetable dish but I think I’ll just roast some zucchini.
