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.
