I've celebrated the Thanksgiving holiday in the past in Japan... sort of. Usually a bunch of us foreigners get together and pretend like we are a big happy family. It gets lamer each year. This year it wasn't in the cards. But, on my way to buy my 250 yen bento lunch, I said, "Fuck it! I need to splurge on something resembling turkey!"
Fried chicken curry from CoCo Ichiban. If I pretend the sauce is gravy mixed with spicy cranberry jelly, it sort of works. And chicken is just a tiny turkey, so it's all good.
Yeah, can't even have a turkey sandwich over here...Japanese groceries are certainly lacking in non-ham sandwich meats.
