For those in the US, enjoy the festivities!

Growing up, I knew nothing about Thanksgiving. I had no idea one day I would be living here and calling the US my new home. Of all American holidays, Thanksgiving is my favorite. It is a time to just be together with family and friends, being grateful for the good things we have. On that note, I wish Black Fridays did not exist. Or that they could be placed somewhere far apart in time from this special holiday. Still, what matters the most is that we all have things to be grateful for, and I hope your day will focus on that.
For our first Thanksgiving in the Little Apple, we will have a joint party, two labs together, celebrating with all the graduate students who stayed here working hard during the break from classes. It will be a fun evening, I am sure! Phil will be in charge of the turkey, and I’ll be his sous chef. All I have to do is mashed potatoes… I got the easy job this year.
And here is a shot taken a couple of days ago in our street. One would imagine that with Thanksgiving right at the corner, those guys would be a little more careful! 😉
For those in the US, who celebrate the date, have a wonderful day! I wish I had a lot of cooking to share with you, but we will be pampered guests this year again. I heard our boss’ daughter will be bringing her signature butternut squash soup to the get-together, and his wife will make her family’s turkey recipe and the usual side dishes. Can hardly wait!
If they had allowed us to bring something to the meal, I’d probably make this delicious sweet potato and carrot puree, so I leave you with a little flash-back from a previous post in the Bewitching Kitchen.
