Yet another tradition that no matter where we live, we celebrate is Thanksgiving. Last Thursday was no exception.
But what made this day extra special is that 4 of our church missionaries wanted to do all the cooking just that they wanted to use my food and my kitchen. So I had more of a supervisory role and as well cooking instructor. Days like today made me miss my son in more ways than one.
I can’t believe I am letting these 4 guys cook Thanksgiving! They had just a wee bit of fun I think.
They had never cleaned or prepared a turkey before. They were to funny when they found out they had to put their hands inside it and pull stuff out.
Time to get the green bean casserole in the crock-pot.
Well the main stuff is cooking so that means, American football time!
Time to get the table set for dinner. Now which cup goes where?
“E” learned how to fold napkins all fancy at school a few weeks ago during a cooking class, so she made sure they done just right.
Time to start the stuffing!
How many people can fit in my kitchen?
Woo Hoo!! The turkeys are done.
Yep, I think we are ready to eat.
Turkey & sweet potato’s with over cooked marshmallows on top.
Stuffing, mushrooms and rolls.
This is what I am thankful for, to be surrounded by family, friends and God.
How much food can you get on one plate?
The after dinner stomach blues!
The best part about Thanksgiving, pumpkin pie!
Since I am 3 weeks into the diet, I had to cut calories somewhere!
Since he is lactose intolerant, pecan pie was all his according to him. The hubby had something else to say about that.
Unfortunatly eggnog doesn’t exsist here in Poland BUT fortunatly is way easy to make for scratch! I will never purchase eggnog again homemade is AWESOME and super easy!!
It would not be Thanksgiving with a bunch of kids and young adults if someone didn’t do this with the whipped cream.
What a great night it was with 7 teenagers/young 20 somethings at the same dinner table. More times than I could count I was speechless.
Yet another turkey day in Poland a success!
What is your favorite food to eat on Thanksgiving? Me, sweet potatoes!
