Thanksgiving is an American holiday, but there’s enough ex-pats and Taiwanese-Americans over here that many of the big hotels have Thanksgiving dinners for takeaway. We live right behind the Landis Hotel, so it was a pretty easy choice for us. Their meal included a whole large bacon-wrapped roast turkey in a nice basket, gravy, cranberry sauce, vegetables and pumpkin pie. Downsides are that the stuffing was made of something like lentils instead of the American style bread and vegetable stuffing I’m used to. Also no sweet potato with marshmallow topping, no green bean casserole with french fried onion topping, no mashed potatoes, and no crescent rolls (though we got French Bread instead). But close enough. Emily ended up eating only a little bit and then demanded leftover spaghetti instead. I gave her turkey to my cat King who was very happy to eat it instead. I got to eat a whole drumstick all by myself.
