Un-American Thanksgiving

Every year, I feel so un-American eating OUT on Thanksgiving.  But I have good reason!  Last Thanksgiving, I was in the hospital giving birth Abigail!  This year, since we will be on our cruise 2 days after, it just didn't make sense to have all the leftovers go to waste.

Our family tradition is to eat Thanksgiving duck...peking duck that is.  The go-to duck place in DC?  We usually go to Peking Gourmet Inn, where all the presidents go because of the bullet proof glass and all (note: not sure if the bullet proof glass is because of the VIPs or because it's in a not so good area).  But this year, we will celebrate at China Wok.  Located in Vienna, Chef Wang (originally from Oriental Regency), carves up a mean duck for all of us "kids" (yes I'm considered a kid since I am eating with my parents) to gobble up (get it...gobble...Thanksgiving...ok, done laughing at own joke).
