Those of you who know me well know that Thanksgiving is my FAVORITE holiday. Our typical celebration involves lots and lots of friends and family, beginning at 9:00 in the morning with the traditional Turkey Bowl family football game, and continuing with appetizers at noon and THE FEAST around 3 p.m.

It looked for a while like we might (gasp!) SKIP Thanksgiving altogether this year. Instead, we've ended up creating TWO Thanksgivings here in Germany.
Today, my non-cooking husband is dutifully following the directions I've left him, and two other new American teachers are coming home on the train with me after school. They are bringing part of the feast and Andy will work today to create the mashed potatoes, roast the turkey, and whip up a colorful fruit salad.

NO Thanksgiving decorations!
May your Thanksgiving (be it today or Saturday or some other day) be full of friends, food, fellowship, and gratitude.
