The usual hamster was just on summer break, vacationing in the motherland.   Big Grin

They had to get a new hamster, they only live so long.

So, what did y'all do for Thanksgiving? We stayed home and had tacos. Really. Good. Tacos.

My sister broke her arm so we went out.
Good times.

We did a pork loin this year. The turkey got pardoned, but the pig got impeached. .

I took the dog to the dog park. My sister came over and we watched a bit of The Crown. Nothing special. I don't know about other people, but traditional Thanksgiving foods are beginning to wear thin on me. Other than some favorites, I could scrap the entire meal. Last year we had take and bake Pizzas. I think just 3 of us were around.

I'm also wondering why are posting our Thanksgiving day stuff in this particular thread, but it goes with the theme perhaps.

You start by planting a walnut tree.

This was the base recipe I used:
https://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/vale...af-3539005

But I modified it in the following ways:
Used chopped walnuts instead of almonds
Recipe calls for mixing the broth with water, I used all broth, no water, increased the broth by the amount of water it called for.
and instead of parsley I used Cilantro.

As far as the basmati rice, I'm not a connoisseur by any means, but we do eat a lot of rice. The basmati from Trader Joes is our favorite.
