Although I hadn't had any intention of doing a Thanksgiving feast this year due to our unusual living/working arrangment, for some reason last week it just popped into my mind that I should do it ... and off we went, hunting down needed items from the various foreign markets in Shanghai.
Turkeys are imported here and are incredibly expensive ($60 for a small one), so we decided on the cheaper chicken for $7. That's when I realized, chickens come WHOLE here -- meaning the head is still attached!! At first, it grossed me out, but then I got on board remembering this is where we live, why not?
Ironically, the best looking chicken we found was at a market that sold them headless ... that's when I remembered that I'd never cooked a whole chicken before ... after searching a bit, I found this recipe that I mostly followed and it turned out really, really delicious!
PS -- we are so thankful for the many, many blessings that God has bestowed on us, adding them all up, it overwhelms me that we have been given SO much!
