Thanksgiving postmortem at The Oar

Ninang Sol Vanzi carving the turkey for the Oarhouse Thanksgiving line

While the turkey didn't last very long, the line kept coming.

IT was plenty while it lasted, so they say, and the amount of food was certainly more than enough to have faced the onslaught it did last night from our regulars and the visitors who searched far and wide for a more than decent thanksgiving spread in manila.

For appetizing starters were the two blocks of mozzarella cheese, pate and crackers to go with the main feature of the turkey with stuffing, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes with gravy, green beans with bacon, broccoli and cauliflower quiche, german potato salad, boston baked beans, and as second backup to the turkey were two huge sweet hams which the guests barely finished off with apple pie crumble topped with vanilla ice cream for dessert.

Ninang Sol Vanzi and Susan Villaroman made sure that everybody got more than their share, with ninang still daring the troops for more with her military-style approach to feeding everyone. The turkey and all the said trimmings came out well, and we'll leave it at that for however you want to interpret yesterday's successful celebration of T-Day at the Oarhouse.

We'll see you all again next year, I'm sure. ;-)
