An International Thanksgiving

Our Thanksgiving was a hit. The menu was the traditional...
Turkey
Sweet Potatoes with marshmallows
Stuffing
Mashed potatoes
Cranberry sauce (brought by Ed from London)
Green beans
Roasted Carrots
Homemade biscuits
Pumpkin Pie (ingredients from a friend at the Embassy)

It was a fun evening and nice to have all the tastes of home. Although we wish we could have been in the USA for Thanksgiving, it was nice to have friends want to celebrate with us.

We felt it very appropriate to toast to Andi who much like the Indians teaching the Pilgrims how to fish and farm so they could survive the winter, Andi has helped us with...well, everything. She has helped with translations to how to operate our washing machine. She has helped us survive. Thanks Andi!

Here are some photos from the evening...click on the "Our photos" link to the left for more photos from the night...

Yummy! Wish I was there with you, but don't tell Lo b/c then she'll think I didnt' want to be at her house on Thanksgiving, which I was, and had a wonderful time.

Looks great!! ... And to think you were a vegetarian just a few years ago (-: Glad you had a good time! Is this going to be your new tradition?

The place looks nice too - I didn't realize the ceilings were so tall!

love and miss you,
