My very first Thanksgiving

In Sweden we don’t have Thanksgiving. Therefore I was super excited when I yesterday got the opportunity to join in one, possibly not that traditional, thanksgiving.

I headed over early to help and get help in prepping food. Lani was sporting a ThanksGiving rump.

Birds were prepared. Two chickensies. They looked quite naked.

I got some help preparing one of the dishes we were making (Västerbottenpaj for all you swedes out there)

Social media break! Or possibly checking recipes.

We had a little kitchen helper who only wanted to eat, eat, eat.

This was the batch of the second thing I did – pecan pies. Namely mini pecan pies. I’ve never eaten a pecan before, so this was interesting.

Have a taste!

When the evening came closer, we set the table and lighted the candles.

Then it was time for some pecan pie! And other assorted pies. There’ll be a video (online tomorrow, still in editing mode) with the loads and loads of food. How did the pie taste, you ask? So so. But the vanilla ice cream was stunning!

Juan was there. He showed off his awesome rapping skillz.

Jen was our resident DJ and boy was she good at it.

Angela was clear about the first letter in her name.

Half of Edward and half of Eric.

Sipping!

131129-Thanksgiving-Real-4 All in all, quite a great evening. I’m a bit sold on the whole Thanksgiving concept now. Especially when it involves food and a great bunch of people.

      Tack Nathalia! Och jag tror banne mig jag tänker bibehålla denna tradition, även om det inte är en tradition i det här landet. Varje ursäkt att äta mat med trevligt folk måste man ju hoppa på. Du får starta en Friendsgiving!
