This way to Thanksgiving
But it sure tasted like Thanksgiving! We got together with a bunch of American friends and everyone brought their best and favorite Thanksgiving dishes (you better believe I brought stuffing). So all the food was fabulously delicious.
Halfway through the evening, we noticed that Magdalena was not wearing panties. Classy.
Miriam made a traditional (? - it was traditional when I was in elementary school) Thanksgiving hat at KG2 with the hand-trace cutouts and feathers, etc. I'm glad someone is on the ball because I haven't even begun to think about where I can even buy construction paper here. (Though we do have glue.) (But actually we brought that with us from the US.)
The pumpkin dessert I made was, in my opinion, very tasty. However, I messed up the top layer so it didn't look so good. But this turned out to be a stroke of unintentional genius because since it looked so funky, hardly anybody ate it. Which means there's more left over for me to enjoy for the next few days. Note to self: employ this tactic more often at future potlucks.
How was your Thanksgiving?
