Adventure # Thanksgiving

First, thanks to all the moms who were worried about
my Thanksgiving stress.

Hey, don’t worry! Thanksgiving is easier
than Japanese New Year’s cooking!

Just, I have a hard time finding the ingredients…

Every year is different; some shops have some stuff,
and some don’t. The next year, it’s totally different.

My goal is not  to make a perfect Thanksgiving dinner.
I just want the kids  to taste something traditional from my childhood.

Anyway, Things turned out pretty good after all.

The Turkey:

I don’t have to roast a whole turkey because this year,
Costco had turkey breast.

Thanks Costco!

The stuffing:

Always, I can get stuffing from FBC. This year, no!!!!!

I tested some recipes, called my mom, and I hope I solved that problem.
Costco had chicken broth, so I could make homemade stuffing.

The gravy:

Again, FBC didn’t have anything.
So, I hacked a brown gravy sauce to make it taste like turkey gravy (I think).

The cranberry sauce:

Costco had fresh cranberries this year.
I don’t like cranberry sauce because it’s too sweet.
That’s for the kids, and I understand if they won’t like it.

The pumpkin pie:

I could get the ingredients at Kaldi.
And, I baked the first pie today and it looks like the best ever!
I want to save it for the moms, but I’ll make another one tomorrow
so they can taste fresh baked pie.

The stress:

It’s worth it! I hope someday, some of my students can taste a real Thanksgiving dinner in another country. I promise, it will be much better than mine!

P.S.
Thanks Costco!  And, Fabio! (He’s the boss at Sapporo’s Costco).
I suggested (begged)  him last year to sell the turkey breast.
It makes life much easier at Thanksgiving.

P.P.S.
Thanks mom. Now I know how hard it was to make the special holiday cooking!
