Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving this year, I know I sure did. I slept in a lot and also managed to have some turkey this year. Normally my sister and I grab some McDonalds. Last year I think we upped our tradition and had some White Spot. Classy, I know! ๐Ÿ˜€ This was our first time having turkey for Thanksgiving, and it was quite out of the blue. We hadn’t really planned on it until the very last minute.

My sister decided that we should go to the Pier 7 Restaurant and Bar for their Thanksgiving meal on Sunday evening. I was obviously down for it! For our starters we both chose to have the butternut squash soup. I’d say it tasted like a milder butter chicken. I could have had it with some naan or paratha haha! ๐Ÿ˜€

It was then followed by the entrรฉe, which was the roasted turkey. It was quite delicious. I think it could have done with some more flavouring, but it was my first time trying something like this. It included mashed potatoes, some roasted veggies, brussel sprouts (which the picky eater inside me did not eat), cranberry sauce (I still don’t know what this was for, but apparently it’s a thing), the turkey of course, with some gravy. Yes, a lot of food indeed.

As for dessert, there were two options and my sister and I picked one of each so we could share them and try them both. I really liked the chocolate lava cake, whilst my sister was a fan of the warm pumpkin tart. It was a win, win for the both of us! ๐Ÿ˜›
