Happy Thanksgiving

IMAG0416Rosemary-encrusted chicken, fresh-made mashed potatoes, whole-kernel corn, and a glass of merlot.

It’s not much, but hey… I’m in China.

Just a note:   the translation of turkey is “fire chicken”.   I have no clue why.  And mashed potatoes are known as “potato mud”.

And in one dialect, pumpkin pie translates into “noodle melon school”.  The “school” bit is because “pai” is what’s called a “loan-word”.  They use Chinese sounds to approximate a foreign word.
