a parisian thanksgiving

November 29, 2009

seeing as this was the first year that i haven’t been home for thanksgiving, i decided to host it at my apartment for all the foreigners… all fourteen of them.  it was so nice to be able to spend it with people who understand and celebrate thanksgiving…. but it was also nice to have people who don’t and who never have, and be able to share that tradition with them.

it was a potluck of sorts so the food was just as eclectic as the people… everything from thanksgiving staples such as mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie all the way to turkish manti, swedish glögg and fried chicken with plantains, we had it all…everything that is, but turkey.  not having an oven makes it a little hard to cook one, but in all honesty, it really wasn’t needed as there was so many other delicious dishes.

i was a little preoccupied trying to get everything done, so i didn’t get a chance to take pictures… but thanks to my very helpful and very talented friend lisa (from birdie-birdie), i do!

p.s. the last picture is of me in my teeny kitchen- it reminds me of martha stewart in one of those fake my-kitchen-is-spotless-even-though-i’ve-been-cooking-all-day sort of pictures. except my kitchen was not spotless. not.at.all.
