Thanksgiving à Paris

I celebrated Thanksgiving on Friday with Lionel and some of his friends, and it was great.  I got home from work, cooked like a madwoman and then everyone showed up and we enjoyed a little aperitif then sat down for dinner.  We ate and ate and ate till we couldn't eat any more, then we took a little break before digging into dessert.

the buffet...pumpkin bread, green bean casserole, corn, mashed sweet potatoe and butternut squash,
roasted carrots, stuffing, gravy and a whole, stuffed turkey from Picard (thanks Ksam!)

my delicious plate!

The only little snag was there were supposed to be 7 of us, but then two of Lionel's friends just never showed up and never called, which I think is pretty rude, but oh well.  We still had fun and it just meant more food for us!

the pumpkin and one pecan (and the pecan pie was DELICIOUS!)

All in all, it was a great Thanksgiving with lots of traditional foods and tons of eating.  Hope everyone else had a great Thanksgiving, wherever you were!


  1. Yay! Glad you got a turkey. :)

    And wow, I can't believe you did all of that yourself! We did Thanksgiving for 16 here, but luckily everyone brought a dish, so I just did the turkey, stuffing, gravy & bread rolls.

  2. Congratulations. You make a good chef. Looks like life in Paris is inspiring you and awakes your gastronomy talent.
