Three Chinese restaurants, in Chinatown. All on The Cat’s and The Mouse’s “decent” list. One serves Hunan dishes, one Hong Kong cafe dishes, and one serves Cantonese dishes.

The Cat went over to “ching ming” for her father. The Mouse is home alone. Could’ve done take out, but, the refridge does need some “thinning”.

Fresh steamed rice, liverwurst, whole grain mustard, pickled grapes. Nom!

If you do observe, hope you and yours have a happy turkey day. Gobble gobble. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.
