Thanksgiving.

My family’s Thanksgiving tradition is quite simple. We know that we’ll always be together and that there will be A LOT of Chinese food. Classic dishes are roasted duck, sweet and sour prawns and my mom’s famous baked salmon.

We’ll always welcome a classic Thanksgiving dish or two, and this year, my family loved David’s sweet potato casserole.

Admittedly, David does more than half of our cooking, but this breakfast was truly a joint effort. #lovesundays

Tapioca wrapped pork mix at Soi. I know that’s a horrible description, but these chewy balls were awesome. The filling is a combination of pork, peanuts, crispy bits and spices!
