Last Minute Thanksgiving Dinner


Baked Chicken with Garlic and Dried Thymes


Baked Sweet Potato Fries


Chinese Style Green Beans


Mini Sausages with Special Sauce

Serve with soft and fluffy buns and sparkling ciders (picture not taken). Truly a last minute dinner as we were having Dim Sum with some friends in Denver up until 2pm and rushed back to cook this. Nothing traditional as I didn't buy turkey again this year (just didn't want to deal with the big bird for days even though it was super cheap) and I cooked something that we all liked to eat. The mini sausages were of course for the kids with my special Asian sauce instead of BBQ sauce. Asian style green bean instead of green bean casserole and baked sweet potato fries instead of mashed potato with gravy. Recipes of each item will be shared in individual post later.

The thanksgiving meal really look awesome. All the dishes suits my taste buds. :)

Little Corner of Mine said...

Thanks Daphne. Because everything is so easy to prepare and cook. LOL!

It's ok Tigerfish, you still can cook something on Christmas day. Normally I don't cook either, but that day just happened that I had to cook. :P

Thanks Charmaine. I will share my special sauce in later post. Stay tuned!

Thanks Ling. No lah, if you look closely, most dishes were baked. And the mini sausages I just added a sauce to go with it. Even the buns I bought premade, just baked in the oven. Easily done in 2 hours.

Thanks Little Inbox. It suit my taste buds too. LOL!
