Thanksgiving in China!!!
Thanksgiving in China, only one way to celebrate this true American holiday and that is with people. Just as the Indians and Pilgrims got together for a bid feast, we added more of an international mix with all the fixins’. We had Chinese and American people of course and Korean, French, and British people as well. Given this diversity and our delightful chief’s we had an awesome feast. No ovens in this part of China, so we used our small gas kiln as one. Stuffing, pumpkin pie, green bean casserole, duck with turnips, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, and roles were all baked. Vegetable soup, spiced wine, and fried chicken were also cooked to celebrate this holiday. About thirty friends and students came together and ate a fantastic feast. We were so grateful to have such awesome and generous cooks make this holiday feel like home. A huge thanks to them and their delicious food.
