    Happy Thanksgiving to you and John!! Everything looks delicious!! I especially love sweet potatoes as well and also serve them every Thanksgiving and Christmas. Personally, I think it doesn’t matter where we are or what we eat as long as we are thankful!! And we should be thankful for all the good in our lives not only on Thanksgiving, but each and every day!!

    I like to trade my 火鸡 for your meal.

    Happy Thanksgiving! That tofu dish looked amazing and brought me back to big dinners in China and Hong Kong. It was always my favorite. I give you a TON of credit, though, for putting up with those pig feet. The smell alone would have put me off food for two days!

    We also changed our usual Thankgiving dinner with the addition of Chinese steamed buns. And my fiance ate everything with chopsticks, even the mashed potatoes!

    I am glad I am not the only one who mash potatoes in a wok. haha.

    Dawen and I didn’t even celebrate Thanksgiving. Whoops. We didn’t celebrate Thanksgiving last year, either. Or the year before that.

    I don’t eat pork myself and it did take a while for me to get used to of the smell. :O!

    I have a caring husband because he embraced Hanukkah but most of all, I can’t wait to do a official Passover with him.

    I really do like your photos – you have a lovely family. 🙂

    I’ve had a pretty awesome Thanksgiving, even though I did have to work from 4 AM to 1 PM on black Friday and ended up kind of overdosing on caffeine pills and drinking one small and one medium cups of Starbucks (Not a coffee person, although I do have it once in a while.) Its a miracle I survived is all I can say.
