I can’t believe it’s the day before Thanksgiving!!! Hope your gameplan for the feast is under control! As for our family, since all of us are scattered about, it’s going to be a small, cozy gathering. Anyway, Thanksgiving can wait another day because today is….The Recipe Redux reveal day!!! I look forward to this day so much, I kid you not. Not only is it so much fun thinking of and cooking different recipes according to the monthly theme, but it’s so amazing to be in the presence of such a talented and extremely supportive group. I hope to get to know more of my fellow reduxers in the times to come!
The theme for this month is “Vintage Side Dishes.” As the holiday season is upon us, bring on the numerous gatherings of family and friends centered around the most beloved family recipes and traditions. I’m ready! In my household, even the most perfectly glistening, juicy, roasted turkey hasn’t the slightest chance next to our traditional Korean fare (well…truthfully a turkey’s not even present most of the time). Kimchi, dumplings, soy marinated beef, and savory pancakes are what take center stage. Usually what happens is I cook some traditional American Thanksgiving side dishes (c’mon, what’s Thanksgiving without stuffing?!?!), and my mom completely overshadows my labors of love with her unforgettable and succulent Korean dishes.
That’s how my family rolls. Now, on Tim’s side of the family, it’s a whole ‘nother story. They LOVE their traditional Thanksgiving spread w/ turkey, stuffing, green bean casserole – the works. And then there are these out of this world homemade dumplings. Perfection.
The next day, they make their appearance again..dumpling soup!
I first posted this recipe when I had just started blogging, but Regan, Deana, and Serena were gracious enough to allow me to use it for this month’s theme. Thank you, ladies. So please check out the recipe here!
What is your favorite vintage side dish?
Are you ready for Thanksgiving? I shall be in the kitchen most of the day today slaving away! Hopefully I’ll be able to squeeze in some time to work on my paper, too!
I probably won’t be posting until after Thanksgiving, so I just want to say..Happy Thanksgiving!! Hope you enjoy sharing a wonderful spread of heartwarming foods with your loved ones! Delicious eats + fabulous company = what more could you ask for?
