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)
- Coleslaw with red onions and sweet corn
- Apple & raisin stuffing (alteration of this recipe)
- Mashed potatoes
- Pumpkin pie
Four friends came over to share the food and we had a good time!
