Thanksgiving with Family
This weekend, my parents flew into Portland from Maryland for their first Thanksgiving away from home! This was a huge treat for my sister and I. Per Thanksgiving and Duong traditions, we played a lot of tennis and cooked delicious foods every day. The weekend was perfect (if you completely disregard the NW water issue) and I’m sad that they’re gone.
We’re missing Yohan and his parents, but we’ll get to see him at Christmas!
My contribution to dinner: Butternut Squash Soup
Oso loves it when my parents come to town. Something good is always cooking, and Oso expects to be included (especially after my mom gave her pho bones)
Stuffing, one of the best things about Thanksgiving. But why only Thanksgiving? I should make it every day.
One of my mom’s very many specialties: Apple Tart. This one was her most expensive tarts ever. She had to check in her luggage since she opted to make the almond creme filling in advance. No liquids, gels, or pastes allowed on board!
