We celebrate here locally with a hike that ends up at a bar. Being from Detroit we always saw it as an extension of a reason to party.

Don't you have Boxing Day in the US? I'm a Canadian - we have Thanksgiving in October, and also Boxing Day. What do Americans do on Dec. 26, if not figure out what to do with all those leftovers?
Dec 26 is usually filled with Tylenol and alka seltzer and leftovers. I wish it was some sort of holiday, I feel so cut-off the day after.

I did...
Not hindered by any tradition, I decided I can do a Thai thanksgiving, using the ingredients stated.
If this is too much of a free interpetation, let me know.
I will do the dishes one by one as I need to eat them as well.
Here is my bean dish: pat priik king

Excellent. The great thing about thanksgiving is that all cultures can participate. We always made a Greek-inspired thanksgiving.

Tomorrow took a but longer......
Some more pics of the pat prik king:
I was lazy, so used a Thai red curry paste, fried in oil

Added pork

After frying this for a couple of minutes, I added some water to make sure the pork got cooked properly
Then added the beans, fish sauce, a little sugar and kaffir lime leaves

I ate the first bit like the pic in the previous post and my second helping (couldn't help myself) had sugar corn to the side

It's so easy and tastes so good. Always wonder why I don't make it more often!

I've now started on my butternut dish ;)

And time for my butternut-potato dish.....
The butternut comes in place of pumpkin and the potatoes are used to make the dish less sweet.

I am finally getting to use my butternut that I bought for last month's challenge

The red curry paste got fried in coconut cream, which gives it quite a different flavour than frying in oil

Butternut and potato are added (I left some of both behind to add at a later stage, just to keep some structure to the curry)

Added the remainder of the coconut cream and some water and left it to cook. The green bits are kaffir lime leaves. Got a tree in my garden and, as you may have noticed, I use those leaves often
