Hi Everyone in the States or People that live all over the world that celebrate Thanksgiving. Happy Turkey “GOBBLE” to all. We havw a lot to be thankful for to God. Well in our household we celebrate Thanksgiving on Saturday, since the kids has school on Thursday, the kids usually come home around 4:30 in the afternoon. It’s really late and short time for them to sit down and have dinner with us. We want them to really enjoy the Thanksgiving Day so we made it Saturday since we lived here in the Philippines.
We really prepare the American tradition of Thanksgiving. We will have turkey butterball of course. Bob will help me make the stuffing and gravy. I will prepare mashed potatoes, beans, the yams I will make it with our local sweet potato (Camote), we made that a lot and it turned out good. It is hard to find ready to cook yams in a can here that were imported from the States. So why not make our very own camote here. Also pumpkin pie, the other day I tried to use the local squash to substitute into pumpkin for my pie and it turned out good. Bob and the kids liked it. I think because its almost thanksgiving its hard to find imported pumpkin in a can here. So I decided to make pumpkin pie out from squash and Bob told me that he can’t tell the difference anyway. The thing is its cheaper too.
Our turkey we have arranged for it to be roasted (lechon style) in our local lechon house. It’s really good. Honestly its not even dry inside. I prepare the turkey in the morning of Saturday. I rub with butter and salt and pepper inside out. Then put some lemon grass (Tanglad) inside the turkey while its being roasted. The smell of the tanglad will remain. Gosh, while typing now my mouth is drooling.
I hope each and everyone of you have a good Thanksgiving Day. Travel safe you guys. Happy Eating Time!
HAPPY THANKSGIVING DAY!
