Happy Thanksgiving

I wanted to wish all my American friends and family…..

Even though we are in Poland and today is like any other day, kids going to school, husband going to work and me hitting the gym, we are still have a Thanksgiving Day feast with a few friends tonight.

Spending Thanksgiving in Poland for the 2nd time now I realized a few things…

I am thankful for ready made pie crusts are in Poland.  Yes, they are square but that is what knives are for.

I am thankful that canned green beans are in Poland too.  But they are not popular because this is the only brand in one of major grocery stores here.  Canned corn there was at least 6 brands.

I learned yesterday to be thankful for pre-dried bread crumbs for stuffing.  They don't have them here so this is what 20 cups of bread crumbs drying looks like.

I am thankful that while on the small size (4.5 kgs, 10 lbs.) turkeys can be found in Poland even though not easily.

I am thankful that while small (4.5 kgs, 10 lbs.) turkeys can be found in Poland even though not easily.  Hence the reason why you see 2 in the picture because there is no way 13 people are going to survive on 1 turkey.

So after hitting the gym, it will be time to start doing some baking for the big dinner tonight.  Then off to the garage to find the US football to play a quick game.  Oh, then I have to find a link somewhere for the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade.  Even though we are in Poland some traditions are meant to be kept no matter where we live.

What is something you are thankful for this day?  

2 years ago I never imagined I would be saying this but I am thankful for moving here to Poland.  Yes, there are but quite a few challenges living here and a few road bumps that had us ready to pack our bags and leave but now we are getting the hang of it and making the most of what Poland gives us. We have been blessed with a good job, a nice house, I have learnt to cook some amazing food, have made friends that are now family, my kids are speaking almost fluent Polish going to an AMAZING school and well for the most part Polish people are some of the nicest people I have ever met!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

    Yeah, I guess we prefer fresh beans. Or frozen.

    On the other hand it’s really difficult to buy a fresh corn…

    Hi, you can buy breadcrumbs in Poland, they are called “bułka tarta” (grounded for breading) or “grzanki” (cubes for soup or stuffing).
    Happy Thanksgiving!
