Happy Thanksgiving Everyone

I am extremely thankful that I met my friend Patti, she is just wonderful and has made my transition of living in America so much easier. She has graciously invited us all round to hers to celebrate Thanksgiving in true American style. So no cooking for me, although I will be taking some very yummy canapes along.

This was my 'Thanksgiving Lunch' attempt last year:

Not really American, more like an English Christmas Lunch. Roast Potatoes rather than mashed, brussel sprouts with stilton and walnuts, red cabbage with apples, paxo stuffing, and my favourite, small sausages wrapped in bacon. Oh and some bread sauce, can't have turkey without bread sauce.

So have a wonderful Thanksgiving, I know we will.


  1. Hmmmmmm. I hope some recipes follow, especially for bread sauce!!! It all sounds so delicious. Lucky girl you are, traveling off to someone else's house for the big meal. I am hosting this year and, gulp, I plan to try THREE new recipes! I will have all the traditionals so if the new ones fail...

    Blessings to you, Prince Charming and the Oompa Loompas~

  2. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving Tara!!!
