Thanksgiving in London (on Saturday not Thursday...)

So since the UK doesn't celebrate US Thanksgiving we had our Thanksgiving meal on Saturday instead of Thursday.  The Radical Journey unit from Bradford came down from Wednesday until Sunday and joined us for the meal.  All in all we had more than enough food.  Turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, corn casserole, salad, cranberry sauce, sweet potato salad, spicy olives, poppy seed bread, banana bread, and apple pie.  The only thing that was missing was seeing a game of American football after I am fully stuffed of food and wanting to relax a little.  Instead we took a walk down to Crouch End (neighbourhood just down the road) and back looping around.

Pictures are of the food and mealtime.

Others were taking pictures as well...Lois on the left & Ed on the right

Everyone but me (I had the empty chair on the right)

  1. Mmmm. Thanksgiving! I thought I'd posted a note here but it doesn't show. Was looking closely for some harvest-colored napkins that were in your box, but someone else must have supplied the paper goods :). Looks like a great time, and I'm glad you got to celebrate with these friends!
