What I'm looking forward to this Thursday...
I know not everyone celebrates Thanksgiving, but I must tell you what has me all excited...
There's the getting together with family and friends. Lots of hugs, lots of laughs. Lots of catching up with each other.
And you know what else there is a lot of that I'm looking forward to??
Yes, dishes and dishes of glorious food. Am I like a punk or what??
Not only is there turkey and yummy gravy and mashed potatoes but there is comfort food. Food from my childhood that always makes me feel, well, comfy! =D
My aunt has been making this brown gravy with tiny bits of turkey in it all my life. Yes. It's FABULOUS. Then there is this wonderful potato salad she makes. I've made potato salad before but it never comes out as good as hers. Its just sooo good. And because we are part Filipino, she never fails to have sticky rice.
And oh my gosh, there is this broccoli and rice casserole. I know, it doesn't sound appealing even to me, but the taste is wonderfully home.
So that's what I'm gearing up for on Thursday. Lots of visiting and lots of comfort food!!
Is there something you're looking forward to eating with your family or friends??
Let's prepare ourselves. Yum!
