Paku prepares a Thanksgiving feast

For his inaugural Thanksgiving, Paku has settled on the following menu:
  • Turkey with stuffing;
  • Cranberry sauce;
  • Mashed potatoes;
  • Sweet potatoes with oranges and brown sugar;
  • Green beans with pine nuts and basil; and
  • Corn bread
and for dessert,
  • Pumpkin pie;
  • Pecan pie; and (of course)
  • Cheesecake.
Paku commenced Thanksgiving meal production last night by slicing a whole pumpkin in half and baking it in the oven. Paku will season and roast the pumpkin seeds for a Thanksgiving Day snack.

The outcome of Paku's initial efforts are so impressive that one might suspect that Paku was preparing his 12th consecutive Thanksgiving meal and not his first!

I notice a distinct lack of bamboo on the menu. I think a little woody bamboo might go a long way toward seasoning the stuffing-- what a delightful accompaniment to pork!
Also, a bamboo and rhubarb pie is a traditional paku fall dessert.
Also, little known in the US, but bamboo liquor served either on the rocks or straight up is the perfect chaser to some holiday cheer.

Happy Thanksgiving Paku!
