My family was set to arrive at 9pm on Thanksgiving night so Scott, Sergio and I just pulled together a small little thanksgiving together earlier that day - We decided to not wait until the next day since my family had done a little celebration the weekend before in TX and since we had to hit the ground running with activities once they arrived.
Okay, I did most of the cooking - and what started as wanting to have a small Thanksgiving kind of exploded since I figured leftovers would be a good thing for my family on their way.
On the menu:
Grilled honey/soy glazed turkey breast
Arabic meat pies
Arabic Stuffing (hashwa)
|This is the closest thing I have to a food processor - so I just load up this cup with the hummus ingredients and "blend it like beckham"|
|Florentine salad made of spinach, tomato, olives, sun dried tomato, orzo pasta|
|Making the dough for meat pies|
|hashwa in the making - rice+ground beef+nuts+cinnamon+salt and pepper|
|Meat pie filling - tomato+ground beef+garlic+salt+pepper+lemon juice|
|serg making the mashed potatos -|
|Cheers and beers!|
|Happy Thanksgiving! -aww but the main chef didn't even get a pic at the table ;-(|
|Our little spread..mmm..everything was delish - scott made pumpkin rolls that were so could - they might be the key to world peace..i swear|
|we had this sign maker guy on the side of the road make a sign for us to hold up at the airport - Sergio went cowboy style to make the texans feel at home ;-)|
