  We were invited to an early Thanksgiving Dinner at KwangHo Uncle aka 2nd Big Dad’s home in Burnaby.  Big Dad and Mom, Grandma, Yoon & Krista and Yoon-Jai oppa’s family were all going to be there.  How much do I love family dinners?  Extremely!  How much do I love holiday/Thanksgiving dinners?  EXTREMELY!!!

  2nd Big Mom had actually spent the last 3 days prepping for tonight’s dinner and even had Uncle Ho helping her late last night to make sure everything would be just right.  She had post-its stuck to the cupboard drawers above the stove with reminders and timings for everything, too!  She’s so cute!

  Green Beans with Brussel Sprouts.  To my surprise the brussel sprouts were actually delicious!  For some reason I got a hint of wasabi..but Aunt said she didn’t add any.  Hmmm…..it’s a good idea, though!

  Krista brought some homemade desserts she made with her sister Carly of “Kitchening with Carly”.  Apple Pie, Pumpkin Pie and Macarons!!  My absolute favorite comfort desserts!!!  Carly is a magician with Macarons.  Super amazing!!  And they were so good that they disappeared in an instant!

  My sister and I made sure to NOT turn down the suggestion to take some food home with us.  We’re 2 bachelorettes…why would we say “no” to such good food?  Haha!
