Thanksgiving comes early

Stefan and I decided we would prepare a Thanksgiving feast this weekend since we won’t be together on Thanksgiving Day. He surprised me with a beautiful bouquet of fresh flowers, which was super sweet of him. It was really amazing how fast we were able to make a rather large (and delicious) dinner together.

Our menu included:
Wine we brought back last year from Liechtenstein
Pumpkin soup
Turkey
Blood orange cranberry blueberry sauce
Knödels (a stuffing substitute)
Asparagus
Chestnuts in a sauerbraten sauce
Sweet potatoes
And pumpkin pie cups

We were very full at the end of the night, and had plenty of leftovers the next day - just like Thanksgiving should be!

It looks so delicious...I only had a whole turkey once in my life.

It's definitely more of an American thing. I don't think I could cook a whole turkey for anything. I really hate dealing with bones.

I hope you had a great time on Thanksgiving too! I can only imagine how nice it is to have a proper one, after you've been gone for so long, with family and massive quantities of food.
