Thanksgiving 2011Monday, November 28, 2011
Thanksgiving 2011 marks my first official Thanksgiving away from home. My friend suggested that we host an Orphan's Thanksgiving Dinner at her place. She would be the decorator, and I would be the chef. Here's a quick sneak peek into how that went...

|My pride and joy - a perfectly carved turkey!!|
Since it was my first time cooking an entire Hanksgiving meal (New Girl Reference haha), I decided to keep the menu very traditional and I am really happy about how it turned out.
- Roasted Turkey (prepared with a Chinese marinade)
- Homemade Cranberry Sauce
- Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes
- Honey-Balsamic Glazed Brussel Sprouts
- Sage and Sausage Stuffing
- Roasted Asparagus
- Cranberry and Almond Spinach Salad

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
