Paris Thanksgiving



Two of my good American friends and I (featured above: me, Blaire, Aralena) decided to hold a proper Thanksgiving even though we are far from the land of hand turkeys and paper indian hats with feathers at the back. The works: turkey, homemade stuffing (which I made using the chestnuts featured in the post below - you boil them and then peel them), yummy salads of all sorts, mashed potatoes - you know the rest - with a few French additions (thanks to the influence of French husbands, boyfriends, etc): a cheese plate (which included a very stinky cheese, classically), and macaroons for dessert - no pie. It was a party. And we were happy to host it at our newly finished casa.

Your mom and I were wondering together yesterday if you would be celebrate Thanksgiving or not. Looks like you did it proud. The meal looks wonderful. I wish I could have tried the chestnut stuffing and the stinky cheese.

I'm glad you had a good time, but we missed you yesterday.
Love Ya.
