The Florida Whalens had an exciting Thanksgiving. Although we missed everyone in South Carolina and Tennessee, we were able to start some traditions of our own. They may not stay traditions, but at least for this year, they worked. Our menu was Paul’s Sweet potato casserole, orange-hazelnut asparagus, and almond-encrusted halibut. The beur-blanc sauce for the fish was tricky, but we did it…and it was mmmmmmmmm good. Everything was tasty…not too sweet or salty, and the flavors went well together. For dessert, we made homemade earl grey tea ice cream and shared various exotic fruits. Here is a picture of a dragon fruit:
It is spooned out and the big seeds are easily discarded: The flavor is very sweet and unlike any other fruit I’ve tasted.
That was yesterday – Thursday. Today, Friday, we went suit-shopping for Zach so he could have an awesome look for his job interviews in December. I’ll post those pictures next!
