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.

“Temptation Bread”

We ordered this at the restaurant Zodiak. It’s just sweet bread with a scoop of ice cream plopped on top. It’s a dessert, but I don’t think it’s worth the calories. It’s hugely popular. Go figure.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Three

Three dishes out of about 20 served at our welcome banquet. the spring semester starts with a bounty of food, as always.

Here’s how it works:

1. Each week, we’ll provide a theme for creative inspiration. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Friday when the next photo theme will be announced.

2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “Weekly Photo Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ tag.

3. Follow The Daily Post so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements, and subscribe to our newsletter – we’ll highlight great photos from each month’s most popular challenge.

Travel Theme: Sweet

DSCN0596

Ailsa, creator of Where’s My Back Pack?, offers a weekly blogging challenge in the form of a Travel Theme. This week’s prompt is “sweet.” So many choices, but I’ve decided on this cheese cake from the Hotel Mercure’s brunch, a favorite weekend treat.

In China there are local sweets, but I thought I’d honor their pastry chef‘s expertise.

My dessert

About one tenth of the desserts available at the Hyatt Jinan buffet. More elegance and luxury has arrived in Jinan. The photo’s not great, but there’s a little crepe with orange sauce, a chocolate rolled cake, a chocolate tart, a sweet potato cupcake and some grapefruit.
