Celebrating Thanksgiving Away from Home
Thanksgiving is my favourite holiday from back home in the USA. I love celebrating with my family and friends over a table full of delicious dishes. Thanksgiving meals vary from family to family, but almost everyone has roast turkey and pumpkin pie. This year, I hosted a Thanksgiving celebration at my flat with friends from Australia, England, & Scotland. For many of them, it was their first Thanksgiving! Everyone brought special treats to share and I made a roast turkey, my mom's special yellow rice, green bean casserole, roast sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, and pumpkin pie with praline sauce. One of my family's traditions is that everyone has to say what they are thankful for this year before eating - as a child, it was a little nerve-racking doing this in front of my entire familly of 20 plus! Now I look forward to this tradition and even had my guests partake. What are you thankful for this year?
