Early ThanksgivingPosted: November 21, 2013
My sister and brother-in-law have moved into their new apartment with an oven and everything, and our family starts to make a habit out of having dinner over there at least once a week. In a weird coincidence/serendipity, yesterday my dad was given a fresh turkey by one of his colleagues, who knows a turkey farmer – turkeys are gaining popularity here. Long story short, we decided to have an early Thanksgiving/Teacher’s Day celebration (November 20th is Teacher’s Day in Vietnam) instead of waiting until the actual Thanksgiving, because a fresh turkey will definitely taste better than a frozen one. And it was. We had turkey, with roasted root vegetables and pumpkin soup – classic Thanksgiving feast. Hopefully we can make this a tradition from now on, because like I always say, we need more food-based holidays in Vietnam 😛
By the way, the outfit is my attempt to recreate this (right down to the photo), but I don’t think I can pull off that “disheveled chic” look. I just end up looking straight-up disheveled. Also, I swear my tights are black, even though they appear purple. I should probably dial back that color correction.
