It’s the annual Thanksgiving Day in the US today! While it should be a day where we express our gratitude for the food on the table and the roof over our head, sadly, nowadays, people associate this day with gluttony (overstuffed stomachs) and excessive shopping the next day, also known as Black Friday, where you basically do not sleep and hit the stores starting at midnight to grab cheap deals. I know I will not be participating in these commercial frenzies, but I do want to share the delectable meal I was blessed with tonight. It was a bountiful spread of stewed chicken, steamed fish, steamed spare ribs with black bean sauce, sautee greens (garlicky, too), and some wok-fried Spam just to fill up the dinner table space. Granted not all the dishes I was able to partake on, I was lucky to be able to share intimate moments with my loved ones.
May we all share our thankfulness with the people we care and love.
