We were suppose to spend this Thanksgiving with my friend Brandee in Al Ain yesterday, but with a last minute change of plans we decided to stay home and try and cook our own meal. I’m sure everyone back home had a similar feast, but in Dubai this is considered a truly unique meal. In the end, we were pretty proud of our final spread and felt closer to home by actually cooking the dinner from scratch ourselves. Here’s what we cooked:
Honey Roasted Carrots
Sweet Potato Casserole
Late that night, after watching a New Zealand Zombie flick with our friends from downstairs, we enjoyed a second helping of dinner (with a side of the sitcom “Friends”). A perfect ending to a perfectly serendipitous day.
