My Thanksgiving Dinner

A fraction of the dessert choices from Thanksgiving dinner. The Hyatt offered a Thanksgiving feast in Jinan. In addition to the food on this plate, there was an abundance of choices: seafood, cheese, salad, sushi, pizza, hamburger, turkey, cranberry, pumpkin-potato mash with truffle oil, lamb, steak, rabbit, hotpot, Guangzhou barbecue chicken, corn, carrots, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, red and green, and even more desserts.

Grapes & Plums

I bought some of the plums pictured above and they were outstanding.

I’m reminded of the William Carlos Williams poem:

This Is Just To Say

BY WILLIAM CARLOS WILLIAMS

I have eaten
the plums
that were in
the icebox
and which
you were probably
saving
for breakfast
Forgive me
they were delicious
so sweet
and so cold
