We had the day off of school on Thursday for Thanksgiving. It is difficult being so far away from family during holidays, but we are so thankful for the family of friends we have here.
Two of our friends hosted Friendsgiving at their apartment. Brittany is super talented and crafty and put together the prettiest place settings and tablescape:
We divvied up different dishes and brought everything together for an incredible feast. Our menu was different from what David and I typically have for Thanksgiving, but was filled with some of the best food. We had a cheese plate and veggies for appetizers:
Brittany also made a frame where we could write what we were thankful for. Can you tell which ones the boys wrote?
Yes, there is turkey in Turkey. Whole turkeys aren’t super popular or easily available where we’re at, but we were able to snag one last minute. Our friend Bo was in charge of the turkey. His wife got him an awesome hat. Here’s the turkey man with turkey in Turkey:
We had so much food! We’re still eating the leftovers. David and I were in charge of green bean casserole (made from scratch – thanks Alton Brown!), roasted veggies, and Nanny noodles. (We called my paternal grandmother Nanny. She was German and we always have her noodles during the holidays. They’re supposed to be tiny egg noodles. I couldn’t find egg noodles thin enough, but it worked out!)
We hope you had a great Thanksgiving, too!
