Paku embraces an American holiday tradition
For his very first American Thanksgiving celebration, Paku has ambitiously embarked on the preparation of a traditional holiday meal. Paku will prepare this 17lb turkey, complete with pork stuffing (a lot of pork stuffing), and a pie made from an actual pumpkin! Among the many challenges facing Paku this Thanksgiving Eve is his lack of familiarity with the menu items. Paku's initial proposed preparation for the turkey was spicy turkey roll. Then he suggested turkey-katsu (which I don't think is necessarily a bad idea but not appropriate for Thanksgiving), then he suggested turkey ramen and then teriyaki turkey. I think his ideas for the pork are best left to the imagination. Fortunately, Paku is nothing if not reasonable and he has consented to preparing all of the ingredients in the usual way.
