It’s November. Halloween’s over.

Time to start thinking about the next big holiday…


I was invited to preview the Thanksgiving menu at the Plum Tree Inn

Got to celebrate with family – Cousin Judy was my date – I haven’t seen her in over 20 years!!! (Check out her YouTube Channel where she and hubby Jeff go on numerous foodie adventures.)


No Gobble Gobble. Plum Tree Inn is offering Beijing Duck as an alternative this Thanksgiving, which you can order a week beforehand.


Of course, the cameras were going crazy over the preparation!


Also on the menu – Lion’s Head (pork) meatballs with cabbage (a childhood favorite of mine)


Sauteed Sweet and Pungent Shrimps


More shrimp in the Kon Pao Three Delicacies (Fish n Scallops too)


Crispy Beef


Beijing Duck Soup


Asparagus with Chinese Mushrooms


Some I had just a bite of, like the Minced Chicken in Lettuce Cups…


…Shrimp Toast and Beef Skewers…


…some I devoured whole…



…mostly, I portioned out just one serving –

I ate all my dessert too!



These black sesame balls were tasty.


That’s what she said.


(No, really, that’s what cousin Judy said.)
