This year, Thanksgiving was on November 24th and it was a nice, warm day. So, I started my day outside raking the hundreds of leaves that fell from the ONE tree in our front yard. And, from the looks of it, it’s still not done shedding its leaves.
My starting pile started out small, but as we kept going and going. We ended up filling THREE LARGE garbage bags. Got quite a workout from all the raking, but I didn’t mind. It was a fantastic day to be outside!
While I was enjoying the day outside raking hundreds of leaves into piles, my brother was inside determined to cook up a storm for our Thanksgiving dinner. He made a whole lemon chicken rotisserie, vegetable curry, Jasmine rice pilaf, and macaroni & cheese. My dad cooked the palabok on the right, and I whipped up the (very easy) green salad.
In his excitement in cooking up a storm, he decided to whip up some dessert as well. He made a cobbler from our leftover fruits: strawberries and apples. In the end, we were all really full. It was a very yummy Thanksgiving followed by my siblings and I rocking out on the drums, guitar, and mic on Rockband 2
(Btw, congratulations on the Ravens beating the San Francisco 49ers that night! That was a great end to a nice Thanksgiving.)
