Thanksgiving à la française

Where: Chez Alex, director BCA Strasbourg

When: last Saturday (no, we didn’t get a Thanksgiving break)

Invited guests: Turkey, mash potatoes, stuffing, cranberry sauce, green bean casserole, sweet potatoes in brown sugar and marshmallow, corn, carrot cake and pumpkin pie. All the fixin’s!

Why: Ask Charlie Brown, he’ll tell you in 25 minutes of pure Pilgrim propaganda.

Special highlight: American football, Alex’s four sons (all under age 8), and the Beaujolais nouveau wine!

PS. Don’t forget your Indian feathers!

Sounds oh so lovely. Yesterday the German Pastor's wife described a region of Ecuador as just like Southern France...I didn't know how to respond (it was also stated with a lovely German accent). We will have Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow night in a nice restaurant.

so the nice restaurant that Anna mentioned was interesting.
I´ve never had pumpkin pie like that before. It definitely resembled custard.
My beverage was Fanta.
Perhaps in a slightly different category than French wine?
Your meal looked scrumdidlyumptious.
Hope you're doing well.
It sounds as though you are.
love and miss you.
