Thanksgiving Family Dinner

Hi! Guys,

Halloween just passed. That means the holiday season officially started. There were not many things we could do or go during this year because of pandemic. But we were thankful that we still can visit with our families, especially those living close to us.

Here are tips for you to have less kitchen time, but more time visiting with families.

Line Baking Sheets and Roasting Pans

In the cold weather, you most likely use your oven more. If you use it at least twice a week, this is a tip that you must learn. In fact, it is very easy. It is like learn it and forget it. Next time when you need to do that again, you don’t need to think hard and try to figure out what to do. It’s like breathing air.

Some may wonder why bother. It is so easy to get a disposable baking pan in any supermarket. Well, if you do some maths, you will realize that this tip saves you a ton of money.

For instance, if you purchase a roll of aluminum foil 225 ft for $10, you can double layer the bottom of a turkey roasting pan and a layer covering the top of it for at least 50 times. For the same size of disposable roasting pan average costs $3-5 each. Multiply $3, the lowest price, and 50 times together. It costs $150. Now, you see the BIG difference.
Check out this page with a video of tutorial.

Fun Culture

Thanksgiving and Turkey

Above is the Chinese traidtional writing of "turkey". Cantonese pronounces as "fou gai". Mandarin pronounces as "huo ji". The first word on the left means "fire". The word on the right means "chicken". That's right. Chinese call turkey "fire chicken.".

There is no Thanksgiving celebration in Hong Kong or China. However, around this period of time, some restaurants do serve turkey. Do Chinese love turkey meat? Hardly because the meat is too dry for their liking. Part of it is also because of the love of dark meat in the Chinese culture. Does any Chinese eat turkey? Absolutely. Although there are not many, if they do, they would go to a restaurant instead of cooking at home.

Although there is no Thanksgiving in the Chinese culture, there are occasions throughout the year works in a similar way.

That occasion is when people worship their ancestors with food and have a big dinner after.

Be Safe and Healthy

There are government officials asking us not to host Thanksgiving dinner. Honestly, we will leave it up to God, the Creator, to tell us if this is the way to do it.

So, I am ending this month newsletter with this verse.

Philippians 4:6

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
