my mom asked us what we will make when we have thanksgivings on our own, and i cant say i’d do it any differently. turkey, stuffing, green beans, mashed potatoes, jello, cranberry apple casserole, carrot soufflé, apple pie… i did miss aunt lisa’s rolls though. and i think i would make homemade pumpkin pie, too. afterall, if you are going to go all out, might as well go ALL out.
and for all of its cliché-ness, these things i am truly thankful for. look at that plate! it is crammed with food. nourishment, health, community. things we dont always remember as incredible blessings. grace à dieu.

this reminds me of amy d. maybe the curly-ness of it all. or the color. i guess both. this is my “portrait” of you miss dancler. my portrait of you far away. i hope you like it.

the ingredients were rice and apple.
to defend my title as food fight champion, i decided to create an apple sushi. the judges found my dish to be tasty, but thought i put too much emphasis in thinking out of the box than creating a really strong dish with the flavors available in the rice and apple. i suspected this may be the case, but i couldn’t get the idea out of my head, so i went for it anyways. it was delicious and such an experience to create! i know i did not even touch on the art of sushi-making, but i’d encourage everyone to try it!
