We were starving when we got to the HMart Plaza in Duluth. We immediately headed for Chung Dam. It was my first time there. I had sashimi, and was quite disappointed. I couldn't recognize two of the fish on my platter. The banchan was alright. I still prefer Book Chang Dong, my favorite Tofu House directly across the parking lot from Chung Dam. I've never had a bad meal there.
Sashimi (didn't see yellowtail or mackerel. Did you?)

Now fast forward three weeks. It's Thanksgiving week. We were invited to a boater friend's niece's home. It was so sweet of them to include us in their family gathering of over 30 members. I could not get over how efficient these people were. Everything was set up on the kitchen counter, ready to go. The garage was turned into a hall where tables were set up and festively decorated. The drinks and desserts were conveniently laid out there as well. Too bad we forgot to bring the camera:-(! We are thankful for the delicious Southern food and the great company. Thank you David and Janice for the invite!
The day after Thanksgiving, we rounded up the troops and had a hot pot dinner. With all the stuff we got from Atlanta - mix seafood, tofu, mung bean noodles - plus some fresh veggies like spinach and napa cabbage, and of course shrimp, sliced chicken, pork and beef.
Putting up lights and Christmas decorations, playing Christmas music. Now we're talking. 'Tis the season to be jolly.
How was your Thanksgiving and Black Friday shopping?
