A Chinese Thanksgiving

This was not your typical Thanksgiving. There was no turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, or pumpkin pie. Nope, none of that at all. Instead, we had my family's version of Thanksgiving: Dim Sum.  But we still managed to achieve the end result of any Thanksgiving dinner - bloated bellies and happy faces :) 

The local Chinese butcher (no turkey here) 

Chinese style Thanksgiving (complete with rice, rice, and more rice) 

BBQ Pork Buns: The closest we got to having turkey/meat as a part of our meal

Egg Tarts: Chinese spin on pie 

Most importantly, sharing my Thanksgiving meal with family and friends! 

And of course, there were leftovers :)
