Thanksgiving in Tokyo, 2017

For the third time, we cooked a Thanksgiving meal in Tokyo. Baking a whole bird at home (especially turkey) isn’t something I do very often, but I feel it’s worth the effort for this occasion.

We started this tradition because we found a wholesale grocery store that carries frozen whole turkey, Niku-no-Hanamasa. They even deliver the purchase made at the store if you live in the nearby area.

This year we made:

  • Turkey (8.8 lbs)
  • Gravy
  • Coleslaw with red onions and sweet corn
  • Apple & raisin stuffing (alteration of this recipe)
  • Mashed potatoes
  • Pumpkin pie
