This is the 1st year in a very long time that I've spent Thanksgiving with my side of the family. For the past 8 years (at least) we spent Thanksgiving with M's family. This year, we decided to mix things up and spend Thanksgiving with my family and Christmas with M's dad in So-Cal.
We had the obligatory turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy and cranberry sauce. All delicious. But with this being a Yam Thanksgiving, we must also have the obligatory egg rolls, chow mein, rice, and a mish mash of other goodness. And like all Yam gatherings, it was nice and loud with entirely too much food.
