My sister came to visit us for this thanksgiving. We didn't cook a turkey since she's severely allergic to cats and couldn't really stay in the house for too long, so instead, we went for brunch at the Ritz-Carlton at Tyson's Corner, Va. It's an area full of high-end stores and many of the big government agencies have annexes there. It was the most expensive food that all of us had ever had, but you only live once, right?
The picture above were a sampling of the desert spread, complete with miniature pecan pie, creme brulee, a piece of gourmet chocolate, and chocolate cupcake. I consumed more seasonal fruites, like strawberries, blueberries, as well as sides such as mashed potatoes (pretty darn good tasting, and the texture was just right!), steamed buns (they included some Asian theme with steamed buns, and sushi, which were not all that good, according to my sister.)
We ate until we were almost about to get sick, and basically refrained from eating for the rest of the day! Thanks sis! For such a great thanksgiving treat!
