Because I had to miss Thanxgiving at home this year, I decided to host a Canadian Thanxgiving in OZ.
There is no such holiday here so everyone was keen to join in and experience turkey and cranberries (I couldn’t do pumpkin pie).
We had 15 people crammed into our small apartment (surprisingly we did not get a noise complaint) and all went off without a hitch.
The “turkey” I made was actually a turkey leg. I can’t imagine the size of the turkey it must have come from because it was so big it took 2 hours to make and barely fit in my oven. It was the first turkey I have made on my own and I was pleased that it turned out to be quite tasty.
We started the dinner out by saying grace and proceeded to say what we are thankful for. We had some pretty interesting declarations of gratitude.
All in all everyone had a fantastic evening and I was happy to bring a bit of home to the sunny coast.
