Happy (Canadian) Thanksgiving!


Thanksgiving … Hen!

In the midst of some long-weekend gaming (slowly making my way through Metroid), I made Thanksgiving dinner. Thanksgiving is an adopted holiday for us (I guess the Chinese equivalent of a harvest festival would be Mid-Autumn Festival), and since it would take us forever to finish a turkey (we’d still be eating the same one for Christmas), we stray a little from tradition: We usually have chicken. (It’s still poultry!) So tonight, instead of stuffed turkey and pumpkin, it’s stuffed Cornish hens and sweet potatos. Two flavors of hens: a cumin-paprika dry rub, and a sweet orange-soy marinade. Not bad, but I probably should have taken a break from all that gaming earlier to marinate the chickens overnight!
