Wow, another year to celebrate Thanksgiving again. Being here in the Philippines for over 7 years now, It’s so good to celebrate it here nowadays. I can pretty much buy everything I need to prepare and cook for Thanksgiving. Unlike when we first move here, being in General Santos at that time it’s hard to get a good turkey. We bought turkey through our neighbor. The turkey is not that good, very tough we just had the native one. Now, practically every mall in Davao has a butterball turkey and the yams and pumpkin.
Today supposed to be the Thanksgiving, but we will celebrate it this coming Saturday. The kids are in school today, so we moved it to Saturday instead so that the kids will have fun, no school the next day too. We invited some of our closest friends here in Davao. I am really excited to prepare and cook for them. Some of them it is their first time to celebrate Thanksgiving because they are from Europe. They are looking forward on it.
I’m going to prepare mash potato, beans, yams, and of course stuffing. I’m baking pumpkin pie. The turkey we like it to be roasted. It’s really yummy when cook like that. I used to bake them in the oven, but when we tried the roasted one we decided to stick with the roasted one instead. We will have 2 turkey since we have some company. I will make lemon meringue pie since one of my son likes it so much. I will post some pictures of our Thanksgiving day celebration here sometime.
Hope you all have a good celebration!
HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!!!
