This weekend, we celebrated American Thanksgiving at our house. It took me most of the week to locate some foods that I could use to replicate that meal. I was unsuccessful almost 100%.
Turkey was the biggest trouble. Well...it really wasn't trouble. I hate Turkey. Most of us do. We almost always have ham. Which.....I also couldn't find.
There IS Turkey to be found here. Big, expensive 75 Franc (about $90) Turkeys. So....no. And I cannot bring a turkey bigger than a KG (2 pounds) from Germany. Part of the rules of transferring food over the border.
But we have two lovely little chickens that I roasted. And I made cranberry sauce - since they don't have that in a can over here. And we settled for Apple Pie because I couldn't find pie crust to make a Pumpkin one. But my mom had brought us stuffing and I had mashed potatoes, so it worked.
Our first Thanksgiving abroad. Next year I will be more prepared.
