This year I’m spending Thanksgiving with my boyfriend’s family here in Southern California. Since his family doesn’t normally do a traditional Thanksgiving meal w/ all the fixings I like, I figured I’d share some of my favorites w/ them and bring a side of mashed potatoes and creamed corn—two really yummy and easy Thanksgiving dishes to make. They’re getting a Turkey from a local Schezwan restaurant. Yes, Schezwan. Supposedly, they make a great turkey stuffed w/ Chinese sticky rice and we’re going to pick it up on the way to their house. This entry wouldn’t have been created had I not made the most kick ass creamed corn earlier. What makes them kick ass? A little cayenne pepper and a crispy top goes a long way..
