A belated Happy Thanksgiving to all of you ๐Ÿ™‚

This Thanksgiving, I flew to North Carolina to spend time with my family – my mom hosted a brunch with a huge turkey and then my aunt hosted a dinner in Raleigh with another huge turkey! It was a great weekend of eating and spending time with family. How are we going to top it for Christmas this year?

Here are some pictures from my Thanksgiving party in New York – Ariel was nice enough to bring pies from Four and Twenty Blackbirds in Brooklyn (pumpkin pie and salted caramel apple pie):



Laura made amazing mushroom caps filled with cream cheese, bacon, and scallions:


We celebrated Thanksgiving at work by arranging flowers – here’s my arrangement:


My brother and my mom preparing some jap chae:


David put the final touches on my mom’s version of jap chae:

The turkey (my brother massaged it with a special spice mixture and then we cooked it in my mom’s convection oven instead of spatchcocking it):


The brunch spread:

One of my mom’s friend made rice – one of my favorite dishes:


Me and my dad:


A pound cake that my mom’s friend made (my mom added lemon icing to it):


How was your Thanksgiving? I hope you spent it with your family and friends!
